Affirmation of the Global Nonkilling Spirit[edit]

In remembrance

of all who have been killed
of all the killers
of all who have not killed, and
all who have worked to end killing;

Guided by the Global Nonkilling Spirit

taught by faiths and found within,

We pledge ourselves and call upon all

to work toward the measurable goal
of a killing-free world
with infinite creativity
in reverence for life.

We call upon all leaders and everyone in the World

to join in affirming the Global Nonkilling Spirit
and each to become a Center for Global Nonkilling
to bring about a killing-free world.
