Children As Teachers Of Peace
Editors' comment: On a day when the front pages of most newspapers highlighted bleak prospects for the 1986 superpower arms pact, a friend left a book of children's writings and drawings on our desk. Children As Teachers Of Peace has timely messages, like the drawing above by Judith, age 11, and the advice of a ten-year-old named Carrie, who wrote, "When you know you are about to say something bad or when you are holding a grudge against someone, say to yourself, 'I can experience peace instead of this.'"
Looking through the book, we were reminded of that other, much-publicized ten-year-old, Samantha Smith from Maine. She wrote in 1982 to then Soviet leader Andropov: "I have been worrying about Russia and the United States getting into a nuclear war. Are you going to vote to have a war or not? If you aren't, please tell me how you are going to help to not have a war."
"Just say no!"
