Day 2010 - Common Smilebox
Yulia - one of Valerian's students in Russia - sent us her picture (PEACE
ONE DAY 2010) with a sentence of deep wisdom. She wrote:
might snatch a lot by force yet you can get much more by agreement. It's for
sure senseless to rule over the subdued people, but it's great to live in peace
in the happy world!"
Recently, I discussed with many students of very different ages in some German
schools in Hamburg
on the theme: war - violence - peace. Suddenly a little boy (3rd grade, primary
school) asked me: "Why many politicians don't understand what horrible
things they do?" On this question politicians have always many, many
answers but the teacher and I couldn't respond because truly - there is no
answer to this question!
Below you find the smilebox of Todd's project for the International Peace Day
tomorrow. I'll also send it to Jeremy UK (PEACE ONE DAY) this night so that we
globally can share your students' pictures with a lot of other people outside
of Todd's great project, too.
I’m happy to introduce to you a colleague from Israel - Marsha Goren - who has started the Global Dreamers project. Marsha is one of 10 ePal Teacher Ambassadors 2010 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ILucyoBbz00
Ana Luisa Lozano (Ecuador) September 21 at 9:01pm Hi Valerian, Please give my congrats to Julia for her drawing...it is very good as well as her thinking! It is great to listen to our kids...as I always say: from them we get lots of motivation and warmth.
Thanks for your comments about my kids' pics... Ilse's smilebox is really wonderful and touching, isn't it? To make our kid's voice be heard around the world is an effective way to make people think and act accordingly.
