Reading the news this past week or so reminded me of my all-time favourite documentaries- Promises. It follows the diverse lives of 7 Arab and Jewish children living in Jerusalem. Although they all live within 20 kilometers from each other their world's could not be further apart. The trailer alone brings tears to my eyes.
All politics aside, this movie is a beautifully touching example of how pure, innocent and good all children are regardless of their religion, race and nationality. It reminds me to embrace the peace that lives so naturally within children's hearts, and to try my best not to pass on any jaded negativity to my children and to always be a believer in peace on earth.
