Amazing....yesterday I watched this powerful, moving documentary about the "peace one day" movement, and I was disappointed in myself that yesterday was the first time I heard about it! The other three comments are also from the last few days.... I really hope that this caring and special idea, as presented in this film, will be known and carried out all over the world. Peace for 365 days will start with One Day! For now there is no official followup in that the UN will actually lay down their arms for one day, or any other group at war, but the practical aspects take time and the movie gives a good example of how one person, with back-up, can make a difference for all.
