Peace for the children of the world-

On August 18th, 2000, at 9:00 am, Jean Béliveau left Montreal, Canada. His goal was to walk around the planet to promote “Peace and non-violence for the profit of the children of the world”. He has been traveling alone with a three-wheeled stroller that holds a bit of food, his clothing, a First Aid kit, a small tent and a sleeping bag.

Jean walked across the continents, from North America to South America, then across to South Africa, up to Europe, then the Middle East, South and Eastern Asia, Australia, New Zealand and finally back to Canada.

This 11 years journey was in support of the United Nations proclamation: 2001-2010 – International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World.

In less than 40 days he will return to Montreal, and his 11 year walk will come to an end. Amazing!!! I had been thinking of doing the same thing. Funny too, that he began on his birthday, and his was so near mine. He is for sure an inspiration.
