The first children to graduate from the Bright Heart Children program
Violence seems to have taken hold in our world today to a greater degree than ever. Parents, school organizations and governments are calling for ways to make change. This change needs to be a global effort.
Peaceful behavior and action must be learned. It is now a necessity for children to learn how to live peacefully with others. It is at an early age that a child’s mind can best absorb the meaning of values and principles. It is at this early age that stories and pictures make imprints on the mind. Without the guidance of a clear life-plan that builds character and teaches values and principles, children are deprived of necessary aspects of their humanity and are not equipped for a meaningful life.
It is the children who can change the conflict in the world as they grow into adults. We can teach and model peace for the children through our own actions and words and through the books they read.
I offer the Bright Heart Children books to children everywhere.
