Picture
I used colored pencils to draw this picture.  This picture represents resolving war and the world all living together. This is important to me because I think it portrays something positive. John Lennon is a very good role model.

I like how you showed the beams of light radiating from the peace sign. It shows how powerful peace can be if everyone contributed to the problem

    I teach with Emily Cook in a Chicago suburban school. While my students have learned about global issues in the past, this project allowed them to see that these are not problems that people in other places in the world have to deal with, but rather, that these are world problems, and since we all have a civic responsibility to the world, these are our problems too.
