My old man and Duganworks co-founder, Jim Dugan, is working for world peace. One peace pole at a time. One flag ceremony at a time. Reminding us that a simple change of mind or a peaceful intention can make all the difference in the world. It is about intention. If I wake up in the morning and intend to be peaceful, and remind myself throughout the day that I wish to be peaceful – then I am more peaceful. The people I interact with benefit from my peacefulness. It’s quite amazing.
There are over 200,000 peace poles “planted” around the world reminding us, in usually four different languages, to be peaceful. Jim makes peace poles and ships them out to all walks of life. He also leads flag ceremonies, with girl scouts to UN ambassadors, where the flag of each country is waved and the country name is said out loud with the tag “may peace be in that country.” Over and over again, a prayer for peace to each country on the planet is sent into the universe. It’s a powerful ceremony.
The simple mission of the World Peace Society, of which Jim is the US HQ manager, is to spread the prayer: “May Peace Prevail on Earth.” He brings peace poles and flag ceremonies to music festivals where he can reach a large number of open minded people. It’s awesome. If you’d like a peace pole or to host a flag ceremony, please visit worldpeace.org.
Good work Jim Dugan!
