Grade 7 students at Queneesh Elementary School were charged with the task of creating messages to encourage peace around the world. Their inspiration came from learning about the recent and ongoing conflicts in Sudan, The Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Somalia as well as hearing former child soldiers Michel Chikwanine and Emmanuel Jal speak about being immersed in war, their escape from it, and their commitment to bringing awareness and support to the communities they left behind. This inspiring film brings powerful messages of hope and a challenge to all of us from the next generation.
