The Peace Project stems from an article study bearing the same name that compares people and cultures from Chicago, Illinois and from the other side of the planet in Jakarta, Indonesia in the hope to understand and discover our similarities and our universal hope for peace. It looks for us to pause for a moment and notice that now is the time to remind ourselves of how human we are – to proactively try to explain man to man. We can recognize that life is not so black and white but more portraits of gray. Maybe someday we will figure out that we are all human and understand how much we actually have in common. That there is a oneness to mankind and we all, I hope, have peace somewhere in us. These portraits are of people from Chicago and Jakarta and include people from Nashville, Liberia, Peru and Japan. Much peace, love and happiness from them to you.
The Peace Project is available for purchase in the shop: a $50 donation will be made to the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation, Inc. for each sale made.
