A Pledge of Peace

artwork from Kids Against Clip

The following Peace Pledge was written by teachers Hillary Squier and Joan Koster for their students. It is intended for young children, but wouldn't it be wonderful if our world leaders took this pledge too?

I pledge respect to everyone

Not just to those I know.

Family, friends, and neighbors

All need my help to grow.

I will listen when you speak

Although I disagree.

If I have nothing kind to say

I'll keep my words to me.

I will apologize when I cause hurt

Forgive when I hurt others.

Though different skin or hair or eyes

We are all sisters and brothers.

I will be kind to living things,

Take care of the world around me.

Play safely, kindly with my friends

And make my choices wisely.

I'll be a peacemaker day and night

And act in a caring way.

If each of us believes we can,

Real peace could happen today!

Do you have a peace pledge you say with your children?  Share it with us.
