"WE SHALL BEAT OUR SWORDS INTO PLOWSHARES"
is written under this statue in the UN-park - New York.
The bronze-statue was presented to UN and the world society in 1959.
The statue is a signal, - symbolizing the desire of man to end all war and violence, - and convert the sword, the weapons, the means of destruction into creative tools for the benefit of mankind.
At all times the sword has been used as a tool for the use of force.
To conquer, rule and control. To express authority and action-power.
The sword has developed.
Today into guns, cannons, missiles, bombs and granates, - hi-jacked civil planes, drones, suicide bombs, bacterial and chemical weapons.
- And nuclear weapons !
The sword today is so powerful, that we can wipe out each other completely.
It is necessary to call to mind !
All over the world we experience the sword. - Weapons, violence, terror, - the use of force, police and soldiers.
And conflicts and violence continues. Again and again it flares up.
The use of force does not conquer violence
. Because force and violence is of the same, nourishing each other.
The goal of United Nations is clear: - A world without violence and lasting peace.
The statue in the UN-park is telling:
- Disarm !
- Beat the sword, - the weapons into another practice for peace !
To answer this, - the sword is converted into a music instrument, - a bell instrument, - a chime.
This to signal, - that we from today already, can beat the sword into another practice, than force and violence.
We can beat the sword into music, - as defense against violence, - a tool for peace.
World Citizens !
All Heads and Leaders of states and governments in the world !
Military leaders, soldiers, police, organizations, groups, and all single individuals in the world !
DISARM ! - DISARM ! - DISARM !
Beat your swords, your weapons, into another practice, for PEACE.
To the children in the world, to their FREEDOM to rise with no more fear from war and violence !
DISARM ! - LOVE ! - UNITE !
