What Peace Means to Children: The World We All Need

Sep 04, 2013 06:13PM ● By KIDS FOR PEACE

Peace is…

a wish that grows around the world
everyone feeling music in their hearts
everyone having someone to love
everyone knowing they are in a safe place
everyone knowing they are beautiful inside and out

singing together
making art and sharing it with others
growing a garden, planting a tree
protecting animals

getting Dorothy back home
everyone playing sports instead of going to war
happiness for all, peace on Earth and pizza for all people

being kissed goodnight
every child having a family
every child having a ball to play with
at least one hug a day
a warm bed to dream in

the angel in my heart
using your voice for good
treating others as you wish to be treated
sending all soldiers home to their families
people shaking hands

keeping our world safe
knowing anything is possible

having fun and being kindHappy Kids Hands
helping people in need
everyone having an education
everyone having good food


the beauty that surrounds the world
