Remember to Teach Our Kids Peace

Teach Our Kids Peace - 365give
Share Happiness!

This quote reminded me that we need to teach our kids peace every single day, war or no war. I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask, ‘Mother, what was war?'” -Eve Merriam.

 

Remembrance Day for many is a day of reflection and a day of thanks for all those that gave their lives in the name of their countries.

Today I was reminded of something from my 4 year old son about Remembrance Day it’s not just about war but about peace. He didn’t learn about the war we honour on this day but instead he learned about peace.

If we teach our children about peace we won’t have to remember those that have died in past wars. Our children could be the generation that won’t start the wars but practice peace.

Could there really be such a world? Will you give your children the gift of teaching them about peace?

Today’s post is to share the message that my son shared with me today. A message of peace pasted to a poppy he made in school. We should send this message around the world in hopes one day we all choose kindness, consideration, giving and peace.

 

Poppy

Poppy we are but children small

We are too little to do it all

Children you may do your part

Love each other is how you start

Play without fighting.

Share your games and toys.

Be kind and thoughtful,

To all girls and boys.

My dream is to inspire people around the world – young and old – to make a better, happier world for everyone. As a family we have come to learn through our own daily giving practice that if we all do one small thing to give every day – together we will be the change the world needs.
