Campaign started for a stamp honoring Martin Richard's words

Proposed stamp that would read: No more hurting people - Peace

There's an effort to try to convince the Postal Service to issue a stamp in honor of Martin Richard's iconic poster:

World leaders can’t seem to get us to a world free of war and hateful people can’t seem to find resolution or peace without deadly violence against innocent others, but maybe Martin’s simple message will help get us one step closer.

One of the most effective ways to get Martin’s message out to the world would be through the issuance of the Martin Richard Memorial Peace Stamp. A stamp displaying the handmade sign he created with his simple, to the point message. Imagine how many people handle a letter on its journey from sender to receiver, everyone seeing Martin’s message, having to think, even if only momentarily, about peace!
