A Moment for Peace
Created as an answer to never-ending wars and conflicts, and widespread violence and injustice, the “Time-out” wants to weave a thick net of peace around the world, a net with thousands of knots made of people who stop for a minute's silence or a minute's prayer or to meditate on peace every day at 12.00 (noon) in every time zone.
First proposed by Chiara Lubich in 1991 during the Gulf War, this activity was born to create a human chain that links the whole world together.
United with thousands of kids, youth and adults in every Country of the world, we ask for peace in every nation on Earth especially for… (mention here the Countries at war), and wherever violence and injustice reign.
We strive to make the Golden Rule our own: "Do to others what you would want them to do to you" to bring peace wherever we live and build a united world.
