Thanks for all your thoughts, its nice to know there are other that share the same view. I would be glad to give any help needed for this project it is one of my passions here in Portland and around to go to schools and talk to kids, it doesn't come out in the papers always but, I do it very frequently. I hope I am affecting alot of young world citizens in the way they think. Check for more info on this PEACE Project www.TibetanPrayerFlag.com

I had quite a goose bump moment when I read this story. I came across it when I was doing a quick bit of research on Tibetan Prayer flags in preparation for a conference presentation. I will be taking a short film with me to a conference in Adelaide, done by a group of students from refuge backgrounds in the school near where I work. The film is an improvised drama in ten parts that is aimed at building peace by supporting people to better understand the journey of refuges in settling in a new land. At the conference we want to invite people to refelct on this film, to think about what messages about peace it might have for them, and to record these thougts. We had the idea of making a peace prayer flag, stringing together individual thoughts. When I read your article on the work that the students did with the prayer flags, particularly the comments made by Alex Johnson about each person's being different ..what they hold near and dear...and how cool he thought it would be to see them strung up as one unified prayer. This is exactly what I had hoped that it might be like for the people we meet with at the conference. I would love to be able to read Alex's words to the group as a way of describing our intentions. I hope that would be okay?

In addition it was heartening to hear of the hopes Kathleen Meyers has for expanding her student's world views. I have been concerned about the narrow focus of my own child's religous instruction at school and this has given me renewed energy to take this issue up with the school some more, to see if ideas like this could be used in their teachings.

Thank you all so much for this inspiration.

Yours in peace (beyond tolerance)
