World Peace...and other 4th grade achievements

A few years ago, my son Eli and his 4th grade classmates had the great fortune of participating in Mr. John Hunter's "World Peace Game" at Venable Elementary School. A local filmmaker, Chris Farina, captured the experience for a documentary ("World Peace...and other 4th grade achievements") that's about to be released. Stay tuned -- click here for more info.

On a related note, from the Interfaith Cooperation Circle of Central Virginia:

Thousands of communities in countries around the world will celebrate their commitment to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world on International Peace Day. Locally, this celebration will take place on Monday, September 21, from 7:00 to 9:30 PM at The Unity Church, located at 2825 Hydraulic Rd, in the Charlottesville area. Performances will include peace-related music, stories, and poetry offered by people from our community, including some well-known talent. The event is co-hosted by the Interfaith Cooperation Circle of Central Virginia, a URI affiliate, and the Unity Church, along with several partners, in a local effort to create a world-wide culture of peace. Donations are welcome and will support awareness of interfaith cooperation locally and globally. For further information, see

My kids loved the World Peace Game.

We really miss Mr. Hunter at Venable. What a great teacher.
