"A Children's Gathering for Peace"

Extracts from this document...


"A Children's Gathering for Peace" On Sunday, June 5, 2005 I attended an event at the Seattle Center called "A Children's Gathering for Peace". I read about the event/festival in the Entertainment section of the Seattle Times newspaper. I felt that it would be wonderful for my nephews (ages 3 & 4) to experience the diversity of various different cultures. The event was put on by an organization called "Children Sing for Peace" that is an organization focused on empowering children from around the world through music. ...read more.


I was pleasantly surprised to see that this music festival included the participation of everyone who attends. The gathering finished with several local school children and the founder of Children Sing for Peace, leading the crowd in singing "We are Children of Peace", written by both the founder and her school age students. The music festival was being recorded to later be aired on television in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, and India. The music that was preformed was so beautiful. I was flabbergasted at the amount of diverse cultured children whom attended the event. ...read more.


Children love each other full-heartedly not considering any of the social issues that may affect them later in life; such as; violence, racism, poverty, ignorance, and fear. I wish we could all maintain the psychological purity that children possess and sadly lose over the years. I found this event to be incredibly interesting and left feeling that every child and parents should be required to attend a multi-cultural event such as this, at some time or another. My nephews thoroughly enjoyed this event and I really enjoyed watching them interact and socialize with children in the diverse environment. I am without doubt planning to attend any of the "Children Sing for Peace" events that come about in the future. ...read more.
