This iReport is part of an assignment:
Russia and Ukraine can be Europe. Why not both join the European Union and set an example to the world? An invitation to global long-lasting peace. An invitation to protect life on Earth and respect the human rights.
"Life and War" it's not an action movie or a computer game. In the real life, our world history tells us horror stories; the story of mankind. In essence we all share one planet, breath one air, and live under one sun. We are a global species, therefore the globalization process it’s as natural as the planet Earth can be. Regardless of our ethnic background, nationality and believes, we can and we should understand each other, tolerate, communicate, negotiate, embrace our differences and furthermore why not enjoy our traditions, cultural and religious diversity. The fundamental Human rights can and should be the governing law for the entire human species, only then we can expect a sustainable global development. So, I invite Russia along with Ukraine to join the European Union, an extension of the Euro-Asian community.

The global terror should and can come to an end now in 2014.
This is a message to all the people of our planet, to all world leaders, to the United Nations, to Mr. President Putin and to Mr. President Obama.
We all share one planet, breath one air, and live under one sun. We are a global species, therefore the globalization it’s as natural as the planet Earth is.
As we know, the frontiers were created by mankind, artificially, based on greed and power and not on real needs.
The world history tells us horror stories; the story of mankind. As it appears, we, the Human species, the superior intelligence, did not want to learn or we are not as of yet capable to learn from our bloody experience. The armed conflicts are still of human nature; and for what? Money? Power? Where are our true sense of values?
As it is obvious to me, the superior intelligence has many destructive side effects. We are capable to create beneficial handy tools and electronics, but we master the giant killing machines. Are the machines responsible or the human mind decisions? As humans, we are emotional animals, we have wants, we have desires, we have believes, we have self-control, but often we love to gain control over issues to find that soon enough we lost control. Then we cry, just a few enjoy, when in fact they should not. We than pray and honor our heroes. It is just a matter of time, and it does not take much to create reasons to “produce” more heroes. Sure enough, in real life as in the movies or computer games, we know how to generate victims, induce loss of human life, we destroyed families, create pain and suffering.
We are strong but we are weak. We are thought, encouraged to consume, for the benefit of the financial interests, for their personal power. We enjoy consuming without limit, putting a stress on our life support, on our environment. Some say: yes, consuming creates jobs! What type of jobs, doing what, and for what purpose? We are creating jobs at what kind of costs? Are we that weak? Do we know when enough is enough? Do we know when to stop? We go ahead at all prices without sensing that we may be on the edge of the cliff.
Life is short anyway, why not respect it?
Our behavior, our actions are often self-terroristic aimed against our own species, self-destructive. It is a slow motion mass suicidal process. Why? Is this part of the human evolution? I do not think so! Is this what the higher intelligence it’s all about? We love to impose our system of values upon others, even resuming killing each other if obedience on the other part is absent. Then, it is just a matter of momentary perception our gains, but humanity altogether loses. The world loses beautiful human lives and the equilibrium specific to life.
It is about time to realize that we, as superior intelligence, can do better. We learned from the history, from its bloody teachings; please let’s take to mature actions. Regardless of our ethnic background, nationality and believes, we can and we should understand each other, tolerate, communicate, negotiate, embrace our differences and furthermore why not enjoy our traditions, cultural and religious diversity.
Let’s learn from each other !
Yes, globalization can be a healthy process if we respect our traditions, our culture and share our values in a peaceful mater.
The global terror should and can come to an end now in 2014.
The latest events in Iraq, Egypt, and Syria and especially now in Ukraine should be an occasion for a long lasting world peace. All humanity’s resources need to be respected. Every nation has some resources to exchange with others, but again, let’s never forget that the most important natural resource is the human resource; therefore I’ll like to call for respecting and protecting human lives, the only source for any added value to our holdings, regardless of their quantum.
The fundamental Human rights should be the governing law for the entire human species, only then we can expect a sustainable development while respecting our parents, grandparents, our heroes and their sacrifices.
Perhaps now it’s the time for Russia to consider joining the European Union, an extension of the Euro-Asian community. I am sure that ways can be found. We all have resources we can peacefully and ethically share. We do not need to kill each other anymore. Enough it’s enough.
We are one world, one global anyway. Please, let’s do it now.
