WOW.. those are some smart children and gave some really powerful words of advice and wisdom!

My favorite one was:
We donít like it that our fathers must be soldiers
and shoot other childrenís fathers.
Engbrottsskolan
Ctvidaberg, Sweden

This touched me, as the country I live in is at war with other countries and so many soldiers are losing their lives and their families are losing them! I have a cousin that was just sent to Iraq on Easter Day and he has 3 children. What if he loses his life or has to kill someone that has children of their own? The thought is very saddening.

To all those children and to all that want to give peace a chance

It makes me happy to see soooo many bright and willing children/poems. It again confirms my believe that we CAN make it happen.

Thanks, some brought tears to my eyes...
