“There are so many things I am thankful for but the greatest one of all is peace. When I grow up I want to stop wars and end world hunger but right now, I will try to do little things. Peace is what I will try to do for the rest of my life. Peace is what holds everything together and we need to do little things to keep the peace. That’s what I am thankful for.” ~ Daya Amparonara
