In recent years, contrary to our hopes, we have come to see more and more disastrous events around the world, and this can lead us to feel depressed. But somehow or other, we easily forget these things as soon as the media broadcasts change. The reason is clear: the trouble always seems to be somewhere else, far away from us. Of course, not getting involved in warfare itself is a blessing, but ignorance about disasters can be dangerous. Indeed, our history has taught us that such ignorance can bring about another disaster. As educators, we should focus on peace, as nothing can be taught without a peaceful environment. To avoid disasters, as part of this project, the students as well as teachers, thought about the meaning of peace, or how precious and blessed it is to be able to live in peace. First, each school selected their own materials and sent them to the other schools. Second, each participant thought about the materials they had selected. Third, each participant wrote their comments on the material they had received from the other schools, encouraging an exchange of ideas and questions. To motivate students to be involved in the project, they made peace crafts or something similar to pray for our peace, and sent these to the other schools. The process and results of the project appeared on a web page arranged by participants.
