"The World I Want"
- Hello,I am passing on an opportunity for children to change the world through their action of sharing their dreams of a better one. Please exercise your voice and pass this announcement around your circles and on to the children in your world.We are building the bridge, one rock at a time.HilaryP.S. Carolyn, thanks so much for your thoughtful insights!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The current "ICARE" initiative is aimed at producing a book titled "The World I Want", which is a compilation of stories from children, youth and young adults [up to age 21] of their view of the world as they want it to be. There are no restrictions on the form this description should take; here are three examples: -(1) as a simple list of what they want, (2) as a poem, (3) as a story of a trip from 'this world' to the one they want.
Your help is requested in inviting children, youth and young adults to send us their vision of their world. This is the "brief"
"The World I Want"
The world I experience is not my world - it is a world created by adults, who decide what can be done, how it is done and often why it is done. This is their world not mine. My world is very different; it is as I want it to be for me now, in the future, and for my children. Here is a description of "My World".

"Laugh a little, and the little laugh too. It's great for the kids, when most adults feel blue.
Kids see it so simply, they see it so true. When the adults laugh, kids know that's the real you."
Take care, laugh a lot,
