Jason Mraz checked in with fans on his blog at MySpace (@jasonmraz) on Wednesday (April 7), talking about the reasons behind his activism and his suggestions on how to create peace in the world. The singer songwriter tells readers:
If you would like to contribute to World Peace, I invite you to:
-Start at home. Get complete with ex-boyfriends and ex-girlfriends. Clean up the rough edges with your siblings.
-Own up to the lies you told your parents. If you believe anyone has ever lied to you. Forgive! Forgive! Forgive! (Forget who’s right and who’s wrong. That conversation never leaves people feeling empowered and whole anyway.)
-Take full responsibility of peace in your immediate surroundings and be love for your family, for my family, and for your kind Humankind family.
– Be committed to big things and free yourself of any attachment you have to being accepted by your peers. Besides, when you remain committed, you will inspire and others WILL come around.
