I hate to use my blog as a platform for things of a more political nature, but this one I could not resist. This is one of the most beautiful videos I have seen in a long time, and it almost brought a tear to my eye.
An Israeli graphic designer, Ronny Edry, has started a campaign to help stop the escalating threats of potential war between Israel and Iran. The message, succinctly enough, says this:
Iranians. We love you. We will never bomb your country.
He created posters and videos about a week ago, and since then, others have picked up the effort. The most beautiful part was to see posters in Ronny’s design, sent back to Israel from some of the people of Iran, saying,
Israel, we love you too. We don’t want war with any nation.
My name is Ronny, I’m 41 years old. I’m a father, a teacher, a Graphic Designer. I’m an Israeli citizen and I need your help.
Lately, in the news, we’ve been hearing about a war coming while we the common people are sitting and watching it coming like it has nothing to do with us. On March 15th, I posted a poster on Facebook. The message was simple. Iranians. We love you. We will never bomb your country.
Within 24 hours, thousands of people shared the poster on Facebook, and I started receiving messages from Iran. The next day, we got featured on TV and newspapers, proving that the message was traveling. Fast.
Please help us prevent this war by spreading this message. make your own posters, send this message to your friends and share it. We are raising money in order to produce more posters and keep the movement grow. Thanks to all of you for your support and love.
May we prevent this war.
And another beautiful response from the Youtube community:
