My friends and I naturally fell in behind this group during the Hollywood Peace Parade on Saturday October 28, where we heard Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, speak about peace and nonviolence. These were the only children attending the parade, and they were, indeed, the "heart" of the parade--literally as well as spiritually. I had an opportunity to speak with Sharon Plache, founder and director of the organization. She said that the group has been invited to go to peace parades around the world so that the message of the children can be shared. One such trip will involve going to Japan, where the children and their flags will travel to each of that country's shrines!
