Consider these words of wisdom from The Compassionate Life, by Tenzin Gyatso, the Fourteenth Dalai Lama:
"At the time of the Persian Gulf crisis I made an inner pledge — a commitment that for the rest of my life I would contribute to furthering the idea of demilitarization. As far as my own country is concerned, I have made up my mind that in the future, Tibet should be a completely demilitarized zone. Once again, in working to bring about demilitarization, the key factor is human compassion."

Consider the value you place on human compassion and the extent to which you support demilitarization. Explore organizations that advocate against funding of weaponization and occupation. Research the extent of your country’s weapon sales. Evaluate political candidates’ stances on the issue of demilitarization. Make a pledge to further the idea of demilitarization in ways that work for you.
