What Peace Means to Children

The World We All Need

by Kids for Peace

Happy HandsPeace 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 kind

helping people in need

everyone having an education

Painting Rainboweveryone having good food






the beauty that surrounds the world


I pledge to use my words to speak in a kind way.

I pledge to help others as I go throughout my day.

I pledge to care for our Earth with my healing heart and hands.

I pledge to respect people in each and every land.

I pledge to join together as we unite the big and small.

I pledge to do my part to create peace for one and all.
