About Axil

Hi, I’m Axil Kollist. I am a peace activist. I’ve been a peace activist since I was six years old. Here’s why I became one: When I was six years old my Mom was telling my sister Erika and I about children who don’t feel safe and happy. She told us about starving children and orphans and about children and adults around the world who don’t have the great life that we have. Our Mom showed us pictures of starving and sick children and it just broke our hearts. We decided that we had to help them all. Our Mom and Erika and I decided to set a goal for World Peace Before 2021. At that time I was six years old so that would give us 15 years. The plan developed. We would distribute free stickers with the goal for World Peace Before 2021 and I’d start to sing my song “World Peace Before 2021.” Erika was 8 years old and, back then, she was too nervous and shy to sing with me but she was really devoted to spreading the goal. Finally, at the end of 2011, Erika overcame her shyness and began to sing with me. I’m really happy that she is! She has a very sweet voice.

So, now it’s been six years since Erika and I began to spread the goal for World Peace Before 2021 and we think our message has reached about about 3 million people. We’ve distributed tens of thousands of free stickers and buttons worldwide. Now our goal for World Peace Before 2021 is being translated into many different languages. Our hope is that the goal and the song will be translated into every language on Earth until billions of people worldwide are working for and expecting World Peace Before 2021.

President John Kennedy set a goal that the USA land a Man on the Moon before 1970. People didn’t think it could be done. But with a lot of hard work, that ‘impossible’ goal was reached. And just in time.. In July of 1969. Our goal for World Peace Before 2021 may seem impossible.. But really it isn’t! Like our song says, “We know it can be done……….. World Peace Before 2021.” Join the quest! Peace Out,  Axil Kollist

  21. Hello There. I discovered your weblog the use of msn.

    This is an extremely well written article. I will be sure to bookmark it and return to read more of your
    useful information. Thank you for the post.
    I will certainly return.

  22. Hi Axil and Erika.

    I wanted to send both of you a quick note to tell you I picked up one of your bumper stickers at the Fix Our World festival held this past weekend in Hamilton. While I don’t own a car, the sticker is safe and sound here in my office. I’ve also hit the LIKE button on Facebook, and am following Axil on Twitter.

    I’ll close off today by saying that what both of you are doing is wonderfuly inspirational. While I am currently finishing an accelerated degree program, after that I will be releasing my third book which amongst many things, encourages individuals to think, speak, and act in peace. The book’s title is “The Francis Affirmations” – an affirmation being something positive you repeat over and over to yourself until such a time that it becomes habit forming. When it comes to peace, it sounds like both of you are miles ahead of most of us. 🙂

    I wish you both nothing but the best, and I look forward to hearing more about your project in the months and years ahead via our social media connections. In peace I remain,

    Bryan Arndt,

  26. Lawrence Koss, M.Ed. says:

    So thrilled to see your commitment, Axil and Erika! Upon just now viewing your website, your sincerity and spirit gave me goosebumps. The possibilities you are setting in motion are unlimited – so much so, the “wave of change” that can occur from the vision and inspiration arising from children and families is powerful enough to redirect the largely patriarchal economic, political and media systems that have kept violence in place for so long.

    Keep on keeping on, if you would. You are unquestionably making a difference if you’ve reached 3M people thus far. INDEED, at some point perhaps you’ll consider making a TEDX/Maui presentation?

    Bless your hearts,
