So proud to announce out first piece of official press fro “A Chance for Peace”
A chance encounter on a hike with writer and Huffington Post Contributor Joel Alcaraz lead to this beautiful written interview that discusses the importance of peace in our everyday lives in a world sorely in need of more ambassadors of peace.
We need to talk about peace, but we can’t talk about it if we aren’t engaging in it. There is a line in the film where I say, “Peace is not something you think or something you feel; it’s something you do.” We all have a role to play, but we need to dismantle this idea that being right supersedes doing right.
We are having a crisis of culture. There are racial, economic, and xenophobic issues that are coming apart at the seams. What we see in “A Chance for Peace” is that all the men, women, and children we profiled instinctively knew how to engage in peace. As many of them put it, “We are just doing the best we can with what we have.”
