“If we are to teach real peace in the world, we shall have to begin with the children.” -Gandhi
I was paging through some old photographs this morning and found this one from several years ago. I paused, remembering this wonderful class I looped with and our two year unit on “peace” initiated by a first grader who grew up in Afghanistan, and then I began to cry. This photo captured some of the emotions that have been roller coasting through my mind these past 9 days. It does begin with our children. I feel so lucky to be an educator and to have the opportunity to make a difference and truly teach peace.
