BAD EDUCATION-BAD WORLD
Like you ,everyone living in the world is a survivor of some kind of violence. That is why my two books of "Peace Technology" &"Peace TimeCalendar" have been published by authorhouse,Bloomington,Indiana,USA which can be obtained on line from authorhouse.com.Read the books and change the world through blending of "SCIENCE OF MATTER" with "SCIENCE OF SPIRITUALITY" so that all world citizens will be winners and survivors.Promote Peace Education from mother's womb to highest level of education and incorporate PEACE & GREEN TECHNOLOGY in all kinds of professions and human activities.Looking at today's world,one must do this before she/he leaves this world.
PROMOTE THIS AND IDEAS CONTAINED IN MY TWO BOOKS TO SAVE YOUR/OUR FUTURE GENERATION. Can you? If you do it, you will be blessed.
I'm a teacher in Calgary, Alberta helping a group of grade 8 students at my school conduct a global survey on worldviews. I'm wondering if you might be willing to take this survey (less than 5 mins) and perhaps spread it around - particularly with your students. We're trying to get as many non-North American respondents as we can.
Wondering if you want to Skype with an Australian primary class who are learning about different countries and cultures. Not sure of the time differences but hopefully, if you were interested, we could work out a time?
