A Peaceful Exchange With Iraq

Bruce Wallace, a member of Peaceful Tomorrows and a high school teacher, had an extraordinary idea: opening correspondence between his students and their Iraqi counterparts in an effort to give a face to those living in war as well as allowing the students the opportunity to see how their similarities far outweighed their differences. The below is a portion of the letter exchange between Bruce and his Iraqi counterparts as they created this extraordinary exchange between young minds seeking knowledge and compassion. We thank Bruce for reaching out, Nawar and Numair for responding to that call, and the students with the bravery to engage in a dialogue that leaders are often afraid to begin.

Below is the Baghdad Post article, written by Bruce’s son Mark, about Bruce
