An Open Letter to President Barack Obama (12/12/09)

Dear Mr. President,

Some time ago, I watched you make a brilliant speech about the cycle of racism, and the potential we have to break that cycle. It gave me hope that one day you would speak just as accurately about the cycle of extreme violence and how it can be broken. Will you? When you speak of America's "evil enemies", how come there is no mention of their children? Their children (like their parents) were born into a cycle of fear, leading to hatred, which leads to the sickness often labeled as "evil". How do we break this vicious cycle? How do we reach the children of violent extremists? How do we teach them a new way? If more effort was made to CATCH violent extremists rather than kill them, then wouldn't it set a better example for their (our, all) children? Although force may be necessary in certain situations, how much potential is there to constructively use high tech non-lethal weaponry, rather than lethal force? How much potential is there to educate children and show them examples of former combatants who were able to break the cycle of extreme violence? If more money were spent on providing peace education, rather than building more bombs, then wouldn't we be doing more to break the cycle? If more were done to relieve people of extreme poverty, then wouldn't there be less of the fear and desperation that leads to extreme violence?

Mr. President, millions of peacemakers will continue to study and explore humanity's great potential to evolve beyond the cycle of war. Will you join us?

Sincerely,

Yaron Fishman
