A truly inspirational film that reminds us there are good people in the world.
20 September 2005 | by (Kew Garden Hills, New York City) – See all my reviews

Sure everyone wants world peace. Who doesn't? Often times I've asked myself "What can I do to make a difference? I am merely one man." Jeremy makes a believer out of me. This is a man who plays the game of life on another level. In this documentary he has taken on the challenge to establish a day of peace that is recognized around the world. This movie documents his years of travels to distant lands meeting with countless heads of state and Nobel peace laureates. He is met with obstacles that would discourage most anyone, yet he forges on. After years of work the UN general council pass the amendment. There are moments of bitter irony when the declaration was to be held on the morning of Sept 11. In my lifetime, I hope to see his documentary extended to include footage of the day where we all have peace one day. Mark your calendars it's Sept 21.
