Could Global Peace be achieved in one generation? If the historical opinions of “experts” are any indication the answer is a resounding NO! But, Peace is much too important to be left to the experts.
Peace is not a science. Peace is an art.
Peace is not a science. Peace is an art. Peace should be taught in our schools schools as part of the humanities and at an early age. Perhaps the best the best approach to teaching Peace to young people is as simple as music.
A not-for-profit organization called Playing For Change has created a video rendition of the song “What A Wonderful World” featuring Grandpa Elliott with children’s choirs across the globe bringing children and music together for a better and peaceful future. This video was produced in partnership with Okaïdi childrens clothing stores.
“What a Wonderful World” is a song first recorded by Louis Armstrong and released as a single in 1967. Intended as an antidote for the increasingly racially and politically charged climate of everyday life in the United States, the song also has a hopeful, optimistic tone with regard to the future, with reference to babies being born into the world and having much to look forward to.
The message then as now is just as important be hopeful, be optimistic and practice peace.
