United in Peace, Citizenship and Action

On September 18th, MMC students celebrated Peace Days and the opening of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights through a day dedicated to being “United in Peace, Citizenship and Action”. The following topics were presented: Know your rights – 18 and under by Choloe Chapple, Executive Director of MARL; Make Music Matter: Using Music to Promote Peace by Darcy Ataman, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Make Music Matter; Free China: The Courage to Believe (The struggle against the persecution of minorities in China) by Brian (Tianyuan) Liu; Civilian Peace-keeping: trials and tribulations by Dr. Ann Frisch, Senior Adviser to Nonviolent Peaceforce.

Student comments reflect an enormous respect and appreciation for the day and its focus:

Brittney: In my opinion, the peacekeepers are a vital part of the world, they risk their lives daily to help make our planet safer to live in. By standing against those who would tempt them towards violence, by standing for what they believe is right, and aiding those who are unable to help themselves they set a vital example for today’s youth.

Mikaela: What the unarmed Civilian Peacekeepers are doing is very brave. It must take a lot of courage to go into the middle of a battle unarmed to help save people you don’t even know.

Luke: Le monsieur nous a parlé au sujet de son experience en Afrique avec la musique. […] Je pense que ces types d’expériences sont très difficiles à comprendre. Elles sont extrêmement tristes et me rendent un peu malade. Au Canada, nous n’avons pas ce problème parce que ce n’est pas dangereux et pour la plupart tous le people est égale.

Ariel: In my opinion these issues aren’t expressed enough. For Darcy to take time to help some of the women to write songs about their rape or things to help heal their emotional experience does warm my heart. He makes me want to help the victims of all rape … but I feel as if I alone could not do that. […] Canada should help all those rape victims and try and help them live a new life.

Thanks to those students who shared their viewpoints.
