Two people who have inspired me to use drumming to create the “Largest Drum Circle in the World” for Peace

Great things can happen, and it all starts with one idea and the willingness to pursue it, against all odds.

The films below and the people who they are about have inspired me to create the “Largest Drum Circle in the World” with Bobbie Bernatt.  They made me realize that even one ordinary person, with no fame, no fortune, and no special political power could make a difference in this world,  even when everyone else says you cannot.

Please watch this film of “Jeremy Gilley: One Day of Peace” on YouTube. This inspired me to become involved in working on the “Largest Drum Circle in the World” for Peace and Global Unity starting in our own Community.

To me, it is the significance of one ordinary man’s quest, with no money, no fame, no political power, but only a dream and the passion to pursue this desire for peace.  Through his efforts, he is able to get UN World Leaders to adopt the very first day of peace as September 21.  He accomplishes his goal for “One Day of Peace”.  It starts with one individual’s effort to create a change in this world.  We all start out being ordinary we become extraordinary by our actions.  I hope you feel inspired to make some personal journey of your own towards helping create peace in our lifetime.


Please watch this film where John Hunter, a innovative teacher, and the inventor of the “World Peace Games” Plants the seeds of Peace in our children’s schools to help shape the youth of today who may later become the leaders of tomorrow.

John Hunter puts all the problems of the world on a 4’x5′ plywood board — and lets his 4th-graders solve them. At TED2011, he explains how his World Peace Game engages school kids, and why the complex lessons it teaches — spontaneous, and always surprising — go further than classroom lectures can.

Teacher and musician John Hunter is the inventor of the World Peace Game (and the star of the new doc “World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements”).
