The Heart of the Matter

Crowdsourcing Peace Experiment


If you have 20 minutes and any interest in helping promote peace in the world, keep reading.

Stuart Hoffman and yours truly have recently put together a very cool music/slideshow/video featuring inspired quotes on peace from the various luminaries noted below.

We were just about to launch the show when we realized that all of the photos in it are copyrighted and we ran the risk of getting sued if we launched the show. Ouch!

So... we are looking to HEART OF MATTER readers to join in the fun and send us COPYRIGHT FREE photos of the people listed below. Creative Commons is a possible source. There are other sources, as well.

If you can do this research in the next 48 hours and actually locate and download copyright free photos of the luminaries in our show, please email them to me: Also, include the SOURCE of the photo you are sending, so we know, for sure, it is legal to use.

It takes a village... and a few village idiots. Thanks!

Mahatma Gandhi
Mother Teresa

PS: Our show we be included in Peace Cast's 48 hour livestream if we get the photos in time.
