I am intrigued by this effort to teach children to solve conflicts peacefully. The Children's PEACE Movement mobile classroom is a delightful place to engage in various activities that demonstrate how much better it is to cooperate than to "fight." I enjoyed weaving a strip of fabric to contribute to others efforts to create a woven blanket.I am impressed with Andria Melham, who also carries out these principles in her own life, demonstrating the benefits of not responding to situations in anger. Mary Beth Jones, in her book," Jesus CEO" makes one of the most profound statements I have ever heard - "NO ONE WINS UNTIL WE ALL DO!" If anyone is "losing" then no one has "won." How many events in our world today demonstrate the truth of this statement? How much more we could accomplish if some people were not involved in the useless pursuit of making other people losers? Children's PEACE Movement, as it teaches children to solve problems without conflict is contributing to improving the future of our world.
What an awesome service to our leaders of tomorrow. All adults would benefit in learning the blessing of compromise and peace.
Learning to communicate and put others first is what will heal our world.
This program is essential to our neighborhoods, communities, nation and world!
I am 72 years young and have seen a thing or two in my years on this earth. I am a fan of Greg Mortensen who has done much to further children's education, especially girls, in Pakistan and Afganistan.
The CPC provides education to the eager minds of our youth especially regarding Peace and how to accomplish it. Peace starts with me, spreads to you and keeps on going.
There is a song that says, "it only takes a spark to get a flame gjoing". CPC is planting a lot of sparks and doing a lot of fanning to facilitate the flame of Peace in this world. I applaud and support the efforts of CPC and ask for your support also.
This is such a wonderful program.They go into area's where children don't know how to handle life without conflict our violence.Without this program these children may never have the oppertunity to learn how to handle conflict and apply what they have learned through the Peace center.They have touched so many children and changed their life and given them tools to use in their dailey life.
