We hear news related international and ethnic conflicts almost every day. As various information go back and forth, which make even adults confused, young children may believe even biased information are correct, developing into adults. That’s very sad.
Besides, we live in the era where power of machines are relied too much. Smartphones, mobile handsets, PC...., these are devices bringing convenience and comfort to our life. But some suggest decreased interpersonal closeness and potential health impact.
When I want to break through the situation,“Play of Karuta” being inherited from long time ago in Japan cameto my mind.
Karuta can enable children to listen to episodes of global people contributing to the peace, to look at illustration cards, and to learn about the peace, by playing the game.
Players can interact and compete each other, feel joy sometimes sorrow, help loser, and care for each other.
I wish this “PeaceKaruta”depicting laureates of Novel Peace Prize and those who act for the peace inform importance of the peace, Foster human resources who serve global peace to be a foundation leading to a peaceful future, if not only children but adults play together.
