Dear Friends, I was blessed to have a few moments with the Dali Lama at the 4th World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates in Rome, Italy November 2003. We spoke briefly about Honor Kids International and our contribution to a more peaceful world. Thank you for your support that made it possible for me to accept the invitation to go, and participate in the Peace Summit.
Since I believe child abuse is the root of violence, I shared with the Dali Lama that if we want to cultivate a Culture of Peace we have to create, and begin to educate, a Language of Peace. In order to do this, we have to understand the Language and Culture of Child Abuse.
Thank you for your belief, support and willingness. We can cultivate a Culture of Peace if we are willing to make Peace a priority.
Linda Redford, President HKI
