Today’s question is: Why don’t more people encourage peace??
It was a very small benefit, maybe 40 people, allowing me the opportunity to meet and speak with Matt Lamb at length. He is fascinating. He is determined. He is a riot. I had a fabulous time.
Matt Lamb is about spreading peace throughout the world, one person at a time. People waste so much time hating others that are different or think different then themselves. Peace is about overlooking those differences and making the choice to get along. No one has to agree with everyone, no one has to believe what everyone else believes, but we MUST be able to coexist, harmoniously.
I woke up today and I just can’t help but wonder why everyone doesn’t insist on peace? Wouldn’t our world be such a greater place if we could just get along and learn to love?
I took this statement from Matt’s website because I think it perfectly explains the umbrella project:
Lamb says, “The umbrella is a metaphor for protection – it does not discriminate, and all people – regardless of race, age, gender or country – are safe under its cover. The top of the umbrella is the shelter and represents our hopes, dreams and aspirations. The underside of the umbrella represents our concerns and fears, that which is often closest to us. ”
Boy do I wish more people in this world thought like Matt Lamb.
