Notwithstanding  her heroics,  and whirlwind breathtaking humanitarian awards and missions, Princess Maria Amor , CEO and founder of the nonprofit We Care for Humanity,   at The 2016  International Women’s Peace Group’s Peace Forum in Korea,  January 19,  2016,  PUT FIRE UNDER THOUSANDS OF WOMEN -asking with PASSIONATE LOVE-FURY,  “WHERE IS THE LOVE?!!!”
As The Princess worked the multitude, much like a fire and brimstone pastor making  an impassioned plea for action, juxtaposed by the realities of “sins” done, sins visualized, and the fact that there was, just like a ” faith without action” Christian verse dynamic—— manifesting no faith at all—— she pointed out that  actionless, do nothing attitudes  were the cause of social and political  “female enslavement,  as opposed to culture, as the collective global  female  plight; She even went “street” on the crowd with a “no justice no peace” and “no woman no cry” and a “no women no peace” sermon which had them locked and loaded with a sense that they and the world’s lives were hanging in the balance;  so they must collectively, as BoB marley, the late, legendary singer and activist used to say, “lively up YOURSELVES”.
She stoked the social and political fires of these women and transitioned  her vibe into, though some may deem it a heretical vibe,  that  women can stop or at least be  the missing link in the peace making template dynamic and that only action and the desire to be more proactive and unmeek are the prerequisites  that can help and save the world. Her message of love and that women are very valuable is a missing mindset in some social and political circles worldwide——She even shocked saying  “we need women with “balls”—-‘That”, she said, ” is why we always administer female empowerment programs.
It was very evident that Princess Maria Amor was arming, much like a bible verse, her followers with faith and the necessary attire to do battle against the “beast”, which in this case are apathy, self doubt and a sense of unobtainable global and socio-conomic mobilization. This was more than a call to action as it was a vibe, a spiritual baptism; In fact, arguably Amor sought to remake and make another “creature” of these women so that now refreshed, and made new and whole, they could now go forth and not do her work but do the works which woman were created to do in the first place–supplement men–be the other side of the coin and be a one -two punch duality which peace and war could not say no to at all; An offer that war could not refuse. INDEED, WHERE IS THE LOVE?
Her  speech, packed with punch, offered like  vitamins or water, to malnourished and thirst driven impoverished sites , is here in its entirety  and it is as follows:
The IWPG(International Women’s Peace Initiative)———————–‘ Good afternoon. Before I deliver my piece, allow me to congratulate once again Chairman Man Hee Lee and Chairwoman Nam Hee Kim for the awards and distinctions as Noble Man and Woman of the year of the 3rd Global Officials of Dignity Awards held last September at the United Nations in New York! Thank you. Distinguished guests, peace lovers and advocates.   You probably  heard the phrase “No women, no peace”, such a statement is a fact.
Women are critical agents of sustainable peace and we must fully recognize and use their potential. What are the roles of women for  the cessation of war and achievement of peace? First, let’s ask what constitutes peace? Peace is not only marked by the absence of war – it is about the absence of violence more generally. Sustainable peace entails zero tolerance of violence in households, in the communities, within countries and across States. Violence is a universal challenge. According to statistics more than 1.3 million people worldwide die each year as a result of interpersonal violence alone which are resulted from crimes, drugs, rape, gangs and so on.

Women are definitely the key in the prevention of violence. I agree with Chairwoman Nam Hee Kim that a motherly heart is a trait that only women possess with born instincts-to protect life. Therefore, we can all agree that women’s most major role is to build peace within their families by strengthening the ties between them and their children and creating stability in the lives of their families.

Next, to achieve world peace, there should be equal representation of all citizens – women and men in peace building, and to the economic, political and social growth and development of the society. However, women’s peace building potential have had no significant impact on policies and decision relating to conflicts because of their absence from the decision making processes and bodies in the region. We need more women, excuse my French with “balls”. Having a voice is not enough. We need women to have the power and ability to raise decisions.

It is women’s roles to participate and contribute to the welfare of humanity. We cannot put this on men alone anymore. Sometimes, it isn’t culture that’s crippling women’s ability to participate but it’s their lack of motivation and self confidence; that’s why we conduct many women empowerment seminars, conventions and activities.

Violence and War affects the lives of millions, with long-lasting consequences. War destroys humanity’s fullest potential. It wrecks our dreams, ruins the future of our children. There is no single benefit from war except pain and sorrow and unimaginable destruction and devastation.

It is women’s roles to unite and take part to stop violence and war. If they CAN send soldiers of war, why can’t we send our women AS soldiers of peace? They have guns, we have our weapons too- our mothers’ hearts! They engage in battle, we throw them our hugs and flowers and words of comfort and love! We, women should be the first to barricade any form of violent rally with intention to resolve the problems in peace.

And as we march for peace, we don’t just wear whites and shout peace to promote it, we join and participate in actions or activities that will help end wars and violence, and we have to be consistent in this advocacy.

I have heard the quote “walk the talk,” a million times. I say, no more talk, JUST DO IT!!!!

For my final words, above all the roles I have mentioned, it is women’s role to have peace within herself. Achieving world peace without spirituality, without inner peace is a long shot, because peace begets peace.

Before I give the microphone to the next speaker, I’d like to request everyone to indulge me in this simple exercise that will promote peace. May I ask everyone to stand up. Now, give the next person to you a hug. Let’s share some love! Thank you and a peaceful 2016 to all of you! ‘

I was born in Fountainbleu in Paris France to an army family. My father ,Ruben Smith, and my mother Nancy Smith, worked for the Army and as a school teacher in France, respectively.We are originally from the South. My father’s people from Misissippi and Alabama and my mom’s from South Carolina. I am an avid sports fan and I attended and played sports----football, wresting, and track----- at Bishop England High School, in Charleston, South Carolina; my mom chose both a Catholic high school and an elementary school, Immaculate Conception, for my sister and I. Initially, I wasted a lot of time in school pursuing sports and partying but nevertheless,I went to the College of Charleston, The University of South Carolina, where I majored in Journalism, Advertising and Public Relations, with a minor in Theatre and Speech. I finally graduated from The University of Redlands, in Redlands, CA with a degree in business management. I managed to get into SAG-AFTRA, mostly as an extra, but I have done an occasional speaking stint here and there—CD-ROMs, experimental and industrial films, and voice overs in radio. My most recent endeavor was playing a doctor on "Grey's Anatomy". I like horror, love, thrillers, and I like to read. Weightliftingand jogging are some of my hobbies also. Interestingly enough, my family prepared me for a life on the move, as I have been to every state in The USA except for Alaska and Hawaii. I have an older sister who chose the teaching profession and is doing quite fine. What was i like as a child? Well I tend to think that I existed and flourished within "a culture of hate"--------however South Carolina has ceased and desisted with both "The jim Crow Laws' and flying the Confederate Flag------------I witnessed "colored only" bathrooms, and was in establishments where the Klan showed up. I stayed at hotels where my family and I found pounds of raw CHITTERLINS---hogs guts----- at our doorstep!! But don't get me wrong, as despite these ugly truths about the South, I grew up with some very cool whites, mexicans, Filipino's and other races. But it is what it is. It has Metamorphosized into being a cultural and real estate melting pot, as many from other states are recently flocking there for the cheaper home prices, very stable, safer lifestyle and "bible belt" mentality, and affordable education. I too have Metamorphosized , as I am not the militant little athletic, and partying freak I used to be and have settled into writing for Cold Heat News and assisting We Care for Humanity with their charitable functions. Consequently, I am pretty much a normal army brat who has realized that life is what you make it and people and things are subject to change. So change with life and let by gones be by gones. My dad has since passed away, and my mom and sister and most of my cousins are still alive, but their positive,significant influence, along with the impact my elementary and high school friends have had on me continues on;infact, I believe, where it not for my childhood friends, my high school football Coach Jack Cantey and occasional teenage battles with my dad, I would have become a gang member! Thus my personal manifesto is, Live hard, party when it is time, and utilize both education, and Love for God, and know that FAMILY AND FRIENDS are most important;They're one's conduit for a viable and happy life. ALSO, A FRIEND IN NEED IS A FRIEND---NOT A "FAIR WEATHER"------INDEED.
