In honor of the United Nations International Day of Peace, celebrated annually on September 21st, youth in Kids4Peace Seattle share their reflections on peace:
“Peace is the acceptance of others in all communities across the world.”
–Jacob, 10th Grade
“Life is a constant battle for peace. Those who choose to advocate are the warriors.”
–Tallulah, 10th Grade
“Peace is the bridge between anger and love.”
–Alex, 9th Grade
“We can find peace everywhere, we just have to look.”
–Annabelle, 8th Grade
This past spring, youth from Seattle shared about their experiences in KidsPeace. Together they shared their story about the meaning and impact of this work in their lives and in their communities. As you hear their story in the video below, we invite you to reflect on your own stories and definitions of peace.
We truly believe that together, peace is possible.
