Six years ago, Love Is the Solution, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting peace education as a means to ending hatred in the world, was founded by Nasser Zaghi, an Iranian who moved to the United States with his wife and children during the Iranian Revolution.
Mr. Zaghi named the organization Love Is the Solution, because those four simple words express and embody his central, guiding message. From the beginning, he has worked continuously through Love Is the Solution to create, encourage, and inspire a growing community of friends and supporters who also understand the importance of the role of peace education as a means to future world peace.
Nasser Zaghi published a book introducing the idea that love is a blend of three vital elements: acceptance, fairness, and doing ones' best. With these principles as a foundation, it is his hope that the book, Love Is the Solution - Peace Is Possible
, will may serve to open the doors to teaching peace to children in early childhood, leading to an understanding that love is the only solution to the challenges facing our world. With this letter, we present to you a copy of this wonderful book as ambassador of peace.
In addition to writing the book, through perseverance, passion and dedication, Nasser Zaghi established the Love Is the Solution International Peace Library and Art Gallery in Los Altos Hills, California. The library and gallery feature peace-themed materials to introduce and promote world peace to everyone who wishes to visit.
Love Is the Solution is dedicated to the establishment of International peace education programs. We will make a proposal to the United States Government, and the government of all other nations, to allocate 1% of their defense budget to establish a Peace Department in their nations and fund peace education programs that would become part of each country's educational curriculum.
To this end, the first major event on our calendar will be an invitational gathering of teachers, brought together to explore the possibilities before us. Several such gatherings are envisioned both here an d abroad. The first will be held at Arizona State University Gammage Auditorium in Phoenix, Arizona, on September 11, 2011, which happens to be the International Day of Peace. It is our great honor and privilege to invite influential people like you, Oparah Winfrey and the last Nobel prize Laureates to join us at the opening of the very first Peach Gathering of Teachers.
In seeking statements of support for such fostering of a future peace, Nasser Zaghi has met with several leaders, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Nobile Prize Laureate Shirin Ehadi, former President of the Philippines, Fidel V. Ramos, Michael Beckwith, Tony Robbins, and others. They and a number of leaders in business, finance, and other professions have endorsed our mission.
