Ronny Edry on Ted Talk January 24, 2013

A friend sent me a link to a Ted Talk about Ronny Edry, an Israeli graphic designer.  In March of 2012 he shared a poster on Facebook of himself and his daughter with a message “Iranians we will never bomb your country.  We love you.”  Ronny said that the war between Israel and Iran has seemed imminent for the last decade and the people in Israel live in fear.  He posted the poster on facebook and people both in Israel and Iran responded with positive comments.  He made another poster with his wife and child, and then he made more posters of Israeli people with the same message.  Ronny said that people see images and he wanted them to see that it wasn’t just one man with this message but many Israelis.

The people from Iran responded with their own posters that said, “Iranians we will never bomb your country.  We love you.”

An Iranian girl said she’d been taught to hate the Israeli flag, but now she loved the the blue color and the star.

“Something happening,” Ronny said.  “Good news.”

One of the people commenting on the Ted show said, “I believe these brothers and sisters have stopped a war by showing unconditional love for all.  Let’s spread that around the world!!!”

It’s wonderful to see what one man can do to make the world a better place.

Here is a link to this inspiring show.  It brought tears to my eyes; maybe it will move you as well.

Hi Heidi,

“All we need is Love”! Really – it is so simple.

How are you? I do think of you often;  enjoying your posts, your book and lovely spirit. Robert and I have been traveling back and forth to check in my mom and dad. Dad turned 88 on 1/19 and we were there to celebrate. We had a very sweet visit although I come home with a sad heart. Our connecting flight was through  Minn./ St. Paul this time and the great mid-west was a frozen icicle.

Stay warm and cozy.
