FLAG OF PEACE AND FREEDOM & THE MAN AND THE ELEPHANT PRESS RELEASE
PREEMPTIVE ACTS OF POSITIVITY
Dan Koffman’s Flag of Peace and Freedom & the Man and the Elephant Projects, founded in 1988, is making a shift in focus twenty years later. In 2008, the message is being directed to “the people” in his Golden Rule Activist campaign.
Here’s the key question as he sees it: How would it be possible to get almost everybody in “agreement” about anything today?
“I believe that creating a simple, (almost) impossible for people to disagree with message is the only way. This message must be all-inclusive and leave little room for disagreement. That accomplished, the message would have a chance of aligning people toward simple common action and the awareness that “we’re all in this together”. It is in this spirit that I created and present The Golden Rule Declaration.”
“I believe that (most) people want to do, and are capable of doing, the right thing”, Koffman says.
A long shot? Perhaps. But it seems pretty clear that something needs to be done to impact the world in a positive way . . . and the sooner the better!
We can’t any longer wait for the “powers that be” of the world to make things better for us. We, the People, have the power, individually and together, to create a better world. Every one of us, everyday, in small and meaningful ways, can have a huge, positive impact when we come truthfully from our hearts, our minds and especially our actions.
“The Golden Rule belongs to each and every one of us. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” This simple message (that we all, in one form or another, have been taught and know) forms the basis of every religion in our world and includes those who are not religious but who believe in fair play.”
“I can’t help, therefore, but feel as if I am addressing at least 99% of the planet with this message.”
“If, after reading The Golden Rule Declaration, you find yourself in agreement with its message, I ask you to become a signatory and declare that you will do your best to present the Golden Rule in your daily life and, in this way, make the world a better place.”
“I say do your best because isn’t that all, really, that anyone can ask. We’re human . . . not without flaws, not perfect. But if each of us, everyday, tries to do our best, we can and will make an important, positive difference in our world.”
“If you’re like me, reminders are a good thing. That’s why I offer the Golden Rule Activist wristband. I’ve found that this simple, subtle reminder helps me do the right thing. It could work for you, too. “Wear the Band, Share the Bond.”
If I could, I would ask everyone to read and sign this Declaration.
And then I would ask everyone to share it with their family and friends.
And then I would ask everyone . . . everyday . . . in some small way . . . to present the Golden Rule in their daily lives.
And “everyone” starts with me . . . with you.
Be a Golden Rule Activist in your heart, in your mind and especially in your actions!
