“We made the treaty last week about buying the land,” she explains. “And once we bought the land we bought 20,000 troops before that, with our solar-power plants, our two submarines and our oxygen-production plant. So now we’re scattering them and making sure that areas are covered for military strike.”

Sarah Schmidt, you see, isn’t just a fourth grader at Agnor-Hurt Elementary School in Charlottesville, Va. Sarah Schmidt is an officer in the United Nations.

Pillars of Peace Hawai'i Profiles World Peace Game

The Hawaii Community Foundation, Pam Omidiyar, hundreds of teachers, Bob Peters, Bruce Schauble, Nainoa Thompson, Phil Bossert, Lucy Ahn, Robert Witt -- so many of the people whom we met in Hawai'i I had heard of for years because of their deep and formidable work. It was a feeling of homecoming to meet them in person when we arrived and come to know what the aloha spirit is through the wonderful interactions and exchanges we had everywhere!

Some wonderful new people that we met were Colleen, Robbie, and Jana from the Pillars of Peace Hawai'i project who highlight peace leaders who exemplify the Spirit of Hawai'i in their work. John Hunter were delighted to spend the afternoon talking with them about their work and about his. We appreciate the nice profile of the World Peace Game and the work that John is doing with the Martin Institute to teach teachers that they have shared on their website.
