are the children of the world
This song was written in 2002 by Mary K. McNeill, an artist in residence with the Seattle public school system.

been translated into Spanish, Arabic, Persian, Hindi, and Hebrew. This
project involves sending the song to children all over the world, encouraging
them to make up their ovwn verses and to sing along with us too. We'd
like to make contact with children around the world using this song as
a gesture of friendship and invite them to join in for next year's "A
Children's Gathering For Peace" - with simultaneous celebrations
all around the world. If you know of communities that might be open to
such a connection please let us know.
