Children’s Peace Treaty

We the children of the world
declare peace on the future.

We want a planet free of war and weapons.
We want an end to disease,
death and destruction.

Hatred and hunger and homelessness
make no sense to us,
we want them done away with.

Our earth gives food enough for all –
we will share it.

Our skies give us rainbows everywhere –
we will keep them clear.

We want to laugh together,
play together, work together
learn from each other,
explore and improve life for everyone.

We are for peace, now and forever, for all.

Written by school children in Northern Ireland
