    @kylecoriza yeah I agree – last year each video entry was allowed a full 2 mins. It's going to be tricky to pitch a worthwhile idea succinctly enough to be comprehensible within just half a minute. :/ But what is life if not challenging?

    The people should know that God made the UN to be the center of ruling the whole nations by a super high government just to watch the purity of all governments and rulers. One flag for the globe is necessary to be respected among all. This will start a new era for the globe in ever peace.

    @irashi0 Well, congratulations on your optimism! If all the world was optimistic, then war would not be fought, hunger may go away, and markets may learn the secrete ingredient toward stabilization. I like your idea about hedge funding the currencies, but I wonder why you would not include the Chinese currency? It can't all be Western…can it? Hey, nice camara! Mine makes me fuzzy…or something.

    International politics is being played with faulty rules and attitudes.
    …a good set of rules and enforcement are needed to get people to live together peacefully. To have world peace, we need some international rules and a means of enforcing them. Nonviolent reforms should always be the first method tried for correcting a repressive regime, but when all nonviolent means fail, enforcement by the U.N. is unfortunately the only effective answer.

    In order for the United Nations to be effective, it must give a permanent warning to all nations that the U.N. will come to the aid of any victim of an invasion. … As of now, the U.N. is not structured to do this. We all have a responsibility for a better global order. Our involvement for the sake of human rights, freedom, justice, peace, and the preservation of the Earth is absolutely necessary. Do nothing that harms another person, that injures, jeopardizes or even offends.

    I would love comments on my video response, "Please ask our leaders…"

    A book which expands on this is How To Run The World, by Parag Khanna

    In it he states, "The world has money, talent, technology, food, fuel, entrepreneurs, and do-gooders in spades, but we lack solidarity to bring it all together… "

    The world doesn't need another mega-organization, but rather to get people involved in meaningful ways, to connect our personal will with the collective will of organizations like the UN.

    Is content a significant factor in the equation? Feasibility, efficacy, and efficiency of the idea? Not that ideological and other phenomenal acts within human behavior is not important, but love will feed the world…and important aspect of the psyche; ergo, I am certain the Mayan mothers and fathers of rural Guatemala–alike Africa–do love their starving children. And so, poverty cannot comprehensively be addressed through an emotional stance. Lets get mad and do something about it, 2gether!

    good luck guys. I feel good upon entering this contest. It is really more than just winning that motivated me to make a response video, but my passion to share my thoughts and ideas to others in order to inspire them to take a step towards change. Please try to view my video and see if it could inspire you as well 🙂 please view my video "un citizen ambassadors video contest.wmv" 🙂

    Yes it is not all about winning! It is about committing to bring a change to our communities. It is about ceasing from complaining and pointing fingers, but being part of the change we want

    unitednations: I added my video into the "Create a Video Response" as you suggested via email, but it does not appear in the list of videos responses. Do you know why? i just hope it takes some time to appear on it, thank you.

    My music has changed as copyright issues barred my UN Citizen Ambassador video from being viewed in the USA and Germany.
    The earlier music was Bob Marley – One love

    It has been great to watch all your videos and the ideas contained within.
    Peace with Progress to All

    13. In disagreements with loved ones, deal only with the current
    situation. Don't bring up the past.
    14. Share your knowledge. It's a way to achieve immortality.
    15. Be gentle with the earth.
    16. Once a year, go someplace you've never been before.
    17. Remember that the best relationship is one in which your love for
    each other exceeds your need for each other.
    18. Judge your success by what you had to give up in order to get it.
    19. Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.
