For Whom The Bell Tolls
"You can look at war as a massing of arms and matérial and troops, but you can also see it as something else--as a delicate web of interwoven choices made by human beings, made out of a certain consciousness. The decision to order an attack, the choice to obey or disobey an order, to fire or not to fire a weapon. Armies and, indeed, any culture that supports them must convince the people that all the decisions are made already, and they have no choice. But that is never true." The Fifth Sacred Thing" by Starhawk

History of the World Peace Project for Children
The World Peace Project For Children (WPPC) was founded in 1997 and is based in the Puget Sound area. WPPC is a non-profit organization dedicated to peace education for children. Through unique educational programs and projects such as hands on peace activities including art, music, education, and volunteerism, children have the opportunity to learn and grow. The children develop critical thinking skills on the issues of peace and conflict resolution through participation in discussion groups on these issues, creating their own writings and projects about peace. They gain awareness of these important issues at an early age. Early education in learning about peace builds positive leadership in the community and strong global citizenship for today's children and their future.

The "Only Hearts" Peace Project is an educational, empowering and fun-filled activity that can easily be downloaded from this web page (below) for use in classrooms, after-school programs, and in homes.
