The Children's Peace Book is Jolene DeLisa's message of hope. She asked children around the world to share what peace means to them in her global travels, on peace marches and in everyday encounters. Their words and drawings have been brought together in this memorable book. As Jolene writes in her introduction: "Put a group of children together and they overcome language and culture and quickly learn how to be friends. We must learn from them." *** The "Children's Peace Book" is an exquisite collection of drawings and sayings from young, innocent, and deeply wise children. If we all follow their admonitions for peace and beauty we would stop killing each other. The wisdom of innocence! -Helen Caldicott, M.D., author of "If You Love This Planet" *** The light of Jolene DeLisa's life example of action is captured in "The Children's Peace Book." The stunningly beautiful illustrations from children around the world are laced with poignant messages that bring us all the promise that God is not yet dissatisfied with humanity. There is hope in the hearts and minds of children everywhere. -Michael Collopy, author of "Architects of Peace: Visions of Hope in Words and Images" *** This elegant and important book shows that children possess timeless wisdom and the potential to become adults capable of making monumental advances in the struggle for peace. This book is filled with hope and insight, and it is a valuable tool for educators, activists, parents, and all people who care about humanity and our future. -Capt. Paul K. Chappel, US Army, author of "The End of War" *** Jolene DeLisa's book, with its beautiful drawings and profound words, is a testament to the desire for peace that lies deep within the hearts of children. We are reminded that if adults will prepare the way for peace, the children will make it happen. They are the hope of the future. -Stephanie Glatt, Director, La Casa de Maria Retreat Center, Santa Barbara, CA

Jolene DeLisa has had a vision of peace ever since she was a child in New Zealand. She came to the United States in the late 1940s, became a citizen and was drawn to activism on behalf of the suffering of others, both human and animals. How could there be peace at any level of existence if we see injustice and fail to act on it? What are our duties as citizens of the world? For Jolene, one way of action over the last 60 years has been to volunteer in more than 70 political campaigns, from city councils to the presidency. But she knew that peace was never going to come through politics and laws alone; it had to start with the awakening of hearts to a vision of our shared humanity. She began to speak and walk for peace, starting during the Vietnam War. In 1964 she took part in a 3-day peace walk, then participated in Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament-from Los Angeles to New York to Washington D.C. Other peace marches followed. Wherever Jolene has walked and lived, she has spoken her message in churches, community halls, on radio and television. She has never faltered in her belief that peace is possible and should be the birthright of every child. Jolene lives in Santa Barbara, California, where she continues her life's work. Her calling card reads: Jolene DeLisa, Peacemaker.
