|Through the uncorrupted eyes of children a new perspective on global peace is emerging. Both quiet and noisy, their voices need to be heard because children will always be the future of our world.|
This is the delightful story of a group of children on a mission of peace who traveled to China with Children As The Peacemakers founder Patricia Montandon. The Children's Declaration of Dependence was signed by: Premier Zhao Ziyang Premier of the People's Republic of China, Prime Minister Indria Gandhi, and President Mikhail Gorbachev. Surely their noteworthy story is a significant pledge of unity among children worldwide.
Their goal was to unfurl the Banner of Hope, a memorial to children killed in war around the world. The dramatic climax with both American and Chinese children together on the Great Wall of China is both enthralling and enchanting.
Editor's NoteFounded in 1982 by activist Patricia Montandon, the Children as the Peacemakers Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to sowing the seeds of world peace through the efforts of children all across the globe. In 1985, the foundation took a historic trip to the People's Republic of China for a peacekeeping mission that witnessed the signing of the Children's Declaration of Dependence for nuclear nonproliferation by Chinese premier Zhao Ziyang, Indian prime minister Indira Gandhi, and Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev. In addition, the Peace Kids unfurled a mile-long, red-silk Banner of Hope across the Great Wall of China to honor the children killed in war, resulting in a moving display of compassion that is captured in this heartwarming and inspirational documentary narrated by L.A. LAW's Michael Tucker.
