A vision for creating human understanding among all Earth’s inhabitants
finally this has come to fruition in a way that everyone can participate

Update, 2018: The Pangea Day project has passed and I’m sad to see that the website no longer loads. It was such a marvelous film project. I hope others come forth to produce similar projects soon.
I kind of think of this idea as global prayer through vision instead of words; through energy and heart rather than syllables of meaning….
Like most people, I lend supportive energy toward this dream of world peace that seems so huge but that is, in reality, just the result of individual peace collected.
I really like the idea this woman, Jehane, has about how we might light the fire of world peace in the most powerful way.
She has petitioned an organization called TED for grant money to create a film….it is very difficult to describe what that film could mean. In simply eloquent and truly heart-driven passion, standing humbly and powerfully with her vision in hand, she spoke of why she has been driven to bring a film like no other to the planet.
The question asked by Pangea Day is:
If you had just 10 minutes to say something to the entire world, what would you say?
Film submissions are being accepted for this remarkable film project, Pangea Day, right now.
When watching, I thought of what my 10 minutes might be about…..what is that I have experienced that I would most want to communicate to others?
In this moment, just as I’m typing this, it occurs to me that it would be about understand the far-reaching effects of violence on children and how, whether that violence is from war, abuse or neglect, it tucks away the essence of the innocent being and sometimes for life. Til we heal that child within each person, peace cannot come. Well, it’s one thing to write a paragraph here….quite another to think of how I might put that in a film…
