Marilyn King says, "I want everyone to know what I know and be as excited as I am, because I believe that we are standing on the brink of peace." She doesn't say this lightly; rather she says it with conviction because she's been immersed in the activity of peace building for more than three decades. She's experienced the indicators of peace breaking out, even though it is not being reported in the daily news. She reminds us of the words of the late Willis Harman, scientist, futurist and former president of the Institute of Noetic Sciences, "The negative belief that peace is not possible is the greatest impediment to achieving peace." King understands this because she considers herself an "ordinary" Olympian who expanded her mental capacity to imagine she could participate in both the 1972 and 1976 games competing in the Pentathlon. She is now using that ability to help peace break out on the planet. King is joined by Jean Houston who says, "We know that it is our job in this tremendous open moment of the planet's history to make peace--Peace that is so rich, so full of flavor that it makes sense to make peace." Also participating in this program are Former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations, Robert Muller and Avon Mattison who is one of the founding visionaries of the International Day of Peace which happens annually on September 21st. (hosted by Justine and Michael Toms)
