The women of Ohio, U.S.A., call upon the women of the world, from day-
old babies to our most senior elders, to stand with us on May 13,
2007, to save the world. Our project is based on Sharon Mehdi's book
The Great Silent Grandmother Gathering. If you don't know the story,
a summary of the original version is on the website
www.standingwomen. org http://www.standingwomen.org
If you think it is appropriate, please send this message on to all of
the women throughout the world who you think might like to join us.
We will be standing for the world's children and grandchildren, and
for the seven generations beyond them. We dream of a world where all
of our children have safe drinking water, clean air to breathe, and
enough food to eat. A world where they have access to a basic
education to develop their minds and healthcare to nurture their
growing bodies. A world where they have a warm, safe, and loving
place to call home. A world where they don't live in fear of violence-
-in their home, in their neighborhood, in their school, or in their
world. This is the world of which we dream. This is the cause for
which we will stand.
If you share this dream, please stand with us for five minutes of
silence at 1 p.m. your local time on May 13, 2007, in your local
park, school yard, gathering place, or any place you deem
appropriate, to signify your agreement with this statement. We ask
you to invite the men and boys who you care about to join you. We ask
that you bring bells to ring at 1 p.m. to signify the beginning of
the five minutes of silence and to ring again to signify the end of
the period of silence. During the silence, please think about what
you individually and we collectively can do to attain this world. If
you need to sit rather than stand, please feel free to do so.
Afterwards, hopefully you and your loved ones can talk together about
how we can bring about this world.
See www.standingwomen. org http://www.standingwomen.org for more
details and to register your
commitment to stand with us.? The website is in 15 languages and
links to a YouTube video. We hope to see a 24 hour wave of women and
men all over the globe standing to save the world.
