The current situation in Ukraine has brought the war to a level
where no-one can ignore the danger of a nuclear apocalypse.
President Putin began this war and now the world is involved.
The United Nations and several countries have asked for negotiated settlement.
President Biden has not embraced this approach and the United States continues with a military answer by sending arms, equipment and money.
The children need Samantha Smith’s Inspiration to contact the opposing world leaders asking for peace.
In 1982, her story and the results of the letter she wrote to Yuri Andropov are recorded in the book “Journey to the Soviet Union”.
This was the beginning of the end of the cold war between the United States and the Soviet Union.
Today we call on young people throughout the world to write letters and use modern technology and social media to contact and appeal to President Putin and President Biden asking for an immediate ceasefire and negotiations.
When the leaders agree this will be the beginning of the possibility of peace.
“Sometimes I still worry that the next day will be the last day of the earth. But with more people thinking about problems of the world, I hope that someday soon we will find the way to world peace. Maybe someone will show us the way.” (Samantha Smith)
