To all the people in the world, an amazing opportunity is at our fingertips!
The world is ecstatic about Obama’s election. This is a time for
“people” to stand up, speak out, and reach out to others with the
We, the people of the world, can send a message of unity to the
new President of the United States and all the leaders of the world
via a global initiative! The message is:
We, the people, in every country, want to have peace with everyone
in the world and we are not a threat to each other, we do not want
war, and we will not harm each other!
It is my honor and privilege to present for review a
“people movement” called a “Global Strategy of Nonviolence,
For the Children” (GS of NV). A GSofNV elaborates on three major
elements of unity – children, the common denominator, a common
desire for no war, and nonviolence to be the path to reach out
with the olive branch.
A GSofNV is a global illustration of nonviolence designed for
everyone to participate. It is a plan of action. A major catalyst is
planned and a marketing plan to capture the attention of the world
and the media! As a people movement, a GSofNV is designed to
assist leaders to prevent, diffuse, and resolve conflict. Pragmatic
steps and idealistic goals are planned for changing military
spending to humanitarian needs.
Leaders are needed and representatives of nonviolence. No “fear”
is used, only positive, altruistic steps. A GSofNV is designed to
prepare for, practice, and teach nonviolence on a daily basis and
as an “Emergency Plan” in times of trouble.
A “Catalyst” is planned to set an initiative in motion. A strong
representative of nonviolence is suggested – something different,
readily accessible, already organized in many ways, and usually,
summarily dismissed – women. Women are asked to be the
diplomats and the peacemakers to lead the way for a World-Wide
Unity Campaign. Leaders must come to the forefront and issue a
Call to Women. Many women non-governmental leaders are
aware of the concept. What spark will implement the project?
The sages throughout history have proclaimed the strength of
nonviolence. The election of Obama offers an opportunity for the
people to support a new global ideology of peace. Please review
the following three-page document. Study my work – Look for
insights. Look to see where it can be made stronger, or re-written.
My research, theories, and full plans are available for review. A
GSofNV is a guideline, a template, and designed for everyone to
participate. Let’s work together to inspire humankind!
Peace and Love, Andre Sheldon, Facilitator
stated, “Non-violence heals and restores man’s nature, while giving
him a means to restore social order and justice.”
Global Strategy of Nonviolence, For the Children (GS of NV)
A GSofNV is a strategy to stand up and illustrate the desire for unity! A GSofNV is based
upon people power with nonviolence as its strength. It states that the time has come for
nonviolence to be the doctrine of all societies and countries. If we do not harm each
other, we, the people, can devote our lives to humanitarian needs.
To accomplish this, the main unifying element will be the children, the basic common
denominator between all people. “If a person with black hair sees a person with red hair,
he or she sees someone different, but, if a person with black hair sees a child with red
hair, he or she sees a child.” This is a statement told by Adil Najam, a Boston University
professor in International Relations. A GSofNV is based upon the attributes that come
from the fact that there is a perceived innocence and beauty and a sense of security
because there is no threat or intimidation from children. These attributes can be tools to
unify the world.
Working for commonalities will help solve the differences. The children should be the
focus for three phases: for mobilizing, for conflict resolution, and for prioritizing
programs for the children as the long term goal. It adds idealism and hope. It will lead
one of the main objectives – expenditures changing from military to humanitarian
A GSofNV states: Whatever an individual’s or country’s political, national, religious,
spiritual, or ideological beliefs are, we will not harm each other! We come in peace, we
offer the olive branch, we are not a threat, we are all part of the family of the human race,
we are not enemies, we have common bonds, we apologize for our misdeeds, we forgive
your misdeeds, we need to heal the wounds, we can work together, and we need to start
a GLOBAL ACTION to “break down borders.”
• A global illustration of nonviolence is planned.
• A global marketing plan is developed.
• A GSofNV is a guideline to be molded by the leaders and the people.
• A GSofNV is a plan of action.
• A GSofNV includes conflict resolution measures, support for de-militarization,
The message is meant to influence everyone. The main plan is for demonstrations to be
held in every village, town, and city at the same time. People have to change themselves
and their own societies. Demonstrations, obviously, may not happen everywhere, but if
the oppressed people see the world following a strategy of nonviolence, they will be
influenced to follow nonviolence as well. Leaders convey specific demands and deadlines
to governments. The people movement will continue until there are changes.
NEVER BEFORE has the opportunity been so great to accomplish this feat! There is a
new president of the U.S. Communications happen instantaneously around the world. An
initiative must be started as a proactive measure because once there is an incident,
emotions of anger and retribution will hinder new thought and precipitate the old,
entrenched thinking of dominance.
The beauty is that fear is not being used. The strategy will be to use positive goals that
make people feel good, such as unifying with all other human beings to illustrate the
ability to resolve conflict nonviolently to the children.
In the words of Martin Luther King (MLK), from the book, Strength to Love, nonviolence is
a “commitment to a way of life.” MLK said “It gives them new self respect. It calls up
resources of strength and courage that they did not know they had. Finally, it so stirs the
conscience of the opponent that reconciliation becomes a reality.” How powerful is that
An initiative is designed and ready for implementation. The people are waiting for a
catalyst to change this world! A catalyst is planned to set everything in motion.
The task of creating change is very, very difficult. The obstacle is a BEHEMOTH –
military, political, and economic dominance. Therefore, a strong representative of
nonviolence is imperative. The representative must be trained not to fight back and have
a proclivity for nonviolence. An unconventional method is necessary – something never
tried before, but appropriate.
To be effective, representatives of nonviolence must be common in every village, town,
and city. Therefore, based on research (available for review) and logic, the best
representative of nonviolence found that transcends all borders is women!
Gandhi said, “If nonviolence is the law of our being, the future is with women....”
The combination of women and nonviolence is a formidable force, but is summarily
dismissed by most. A GSofNV brings in to question, or challenges, people to investigate
the strength of women leading the way for peace with nonviolence. Women are half the
population. Women are usually socialized to be less violent than men, therefore women
have an advantage if promoting nonviolence. Women will lead the way to expand the
peace movement to everyone. Therefore, women leaders are urged to implement a
CALL to WOMEN, a World-Wide Unity Campaign
A “Call to Women” does not exclude men. Can it be assumed that most people, men and
women, do not want war? Who were the predominant people fighting in every war
throughout history? The answer is men. If men fought in every war, and people do not
want war, is it not logical that women should fight to prevent it? Men should be
courting women to prevent war, if they truly believe they don’t want war. This is the
test, for men and women.
All the women’s groups would be notified, then all groups, and then implement a
marketing plan that includes an event to capture the world’s attention. First, the core
group needs to be formed. If each of the leaders is aware of the efforts, and they each
contact other leaders, a Call to Women will have begun.
WATCH what HAPPENS - Once in action, all kinds of things will happen.
When the news hits the stands, there will be a reverberation around the world to match
Obama’s election. However, women leaders must come to the forefront! It cannot be
done without leaders! They must EMPOWER the WOMEN!!
• A Call to Women is a strategy to empower the masses and create political clout
• A Call to Women is designed for 24 months of demonstrations (plus more if
designed to be an EVENT. A special plan is designed to capture the attention of
the MEDIA! The media will have no choice but to cover it!
It will be led by women, but it will not be successful just because it is led by women. It is
the idealism. Women should not feel they are superior. Men should not feel they are
weak if they follow. Both women and men will be supporting strength!
With Obama’s presidency, the expectations around the world are high that change is
coming. A people movement is designed to enhance the possibility of change. If there
was unity and there were no wars, the problems would be easier to solve.
People on every continent are the same. They want a safe and healthy environment to
raise their families. They do not want war. Therefore, a GSofNV is designed to illustrate
the people’s desire that they do not want war!
The people of the world have a new opportunity to support and promote the largest,
nonviolent peace movement the world has ever seen – a People Movement. Everyone
can participate. Everyone is needed to express their desire for nonviolence and to
illustrate to everyone else, they are not alone.
A GSofNV is designed to include the religious and spiritual world. There is an incredible
spiritual movement around the world promoting inner peace, which leads to world peace.
The answers do not lie within United States politics, they lie within the whole world politics.
A GSofNV is in direct conjunction with the United Nations Millenium Goals and Culture of
Peace programs by UNESCO. A GSofNV is designed to work in direct correlation with the
United Nations and as a people movement, empower the United Nations!
A GSofNV is a comprehensive plan to create a new political, economic, and social order in
the world and a new paradigm of humanitarian service. The plan includes administrative,
funding, marketing, implementation, and follow-up guidelines. It is a business plan with
goals and timetables (as a guideline – available for review).
IN CONCLUSION, The time has come to lay down the sword, stand up publicly against
war, and reach out with the OLIVE BRANCH!
The world needs a movement of nonviolence! After the election, if peace becomes the
biggest issue of all, Gandhi’s and King’s tactics will create World-Wide Unity. If the world
begins to erupt in violence, the people will have experienced an initiative and have an
opportunity to rise up and implement a new PLAN OF NONVIOLENCE.
Obama proclaimed being an advocate of change. The reason was that there was an
inferred idealism. The inferred idealism was that the U.S. is strong and can overcome any
problem. A GSofNV is idealistic and infers that the people uniting can change the world.
The world needs idealism combined with pragmatism to heal its wounds.
The world needs to know what will happen next. A GSofNV recommends a movement of
unity through nonviolence! Al Sadr in Iraq changed and called for no violence. King
Abdullah of Saudi Arabia spoke out and called for tolerance. Now is the time to utilize
A GSofNV is a World-Wide Unity Campaign. The people of the world can agree on three
major elements: The children are the commonality, nonviolence is the avenue, and no
one wants war! Through these commonalities, all issues of human rights, civil rights,
social justice, and the environment are addressed!
To implement a GSofNV, a special impetus is required. Women are asked to come to the
forefront as representatives of nonviolence. A Call to Women is the catalyst! With
women leading the way, the inference is that there must be gender equality and
awareness of violence against women. The Behemoth can be neutralized by
nonviolence! Women and men will proclaim their allegiance to humanity through

Starhawk wrote about women standing for peace as the representation of a “vision of
strength.” “Real security can come only when we weave a global web of mutual aid and
support. As we make larger connections and take action together, we must assert what
we as women know to be true: compassion is not weakness, and brutality is not
Andre Sheldon’s prediction is when women mobilize, new women leaders will emerge
to promote a partnership society, as Riane Eisler, of the Chalice and the Blade fame,
and Louise Diamond, author of The Peace Book, have envisioned.
