If you could do ONE thing to Promote Peace, what would it be?

Everyone wants World Peace, right? Well, almost everyone anyway. I'm sure some would prefer to see The End of all things; but let's assume most people really DO want to live in harmony and peace with one another, instead of in constant unrest and turmoil. If YOU could do ONLY ONE THING to contribute to World Peace, what would you choose to do? Think of this like having your own "Genie", who has the power to grant your ONE wish, as long as it is aimed at promoting World Peace; or, it can be aimed at denouncing anything that might OPPOSE World Peace. Take your time...this is an important wish!

If I could be granted one wish for world peace, I would do away with religion in public places. Religion is important but should never be allowed to take over our public lives…there should be complete separation of church and state. Throughout the world, nobody should be allowed any public display of religion…in words, attire, accessories whatever.

Hmmm...OK...although I must say that (in my humble opinion) I think religion has played a very important role in the past. I believe humankind NEEDS some form of connection to the forces at work which have made it possible for us to even BE here. That said, I also think that religion can become ineffective, over time. Religion is the "structure" for people to worship and revere the concept of God (whether called that or something else). As humans evolve and learn more truths, I suspect we might (someday) actually do away with religion as we now know it. Since religions are often 'ruined' by some with ill intentions and motives, perhaps humans will ultimately learn to seek the Truth for themselves; and learn to behave according to the altruistic sentiments and philosophies of the Universe itself...(err, that is, of the Creator?). Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this!
