Seeds of Peace International Camp kicks off 20th year in Otisfield | LEWISTON SUN JOURNAL
OTISFIELD | More than 200 teenagers from eight countries were tasked with a tall order Wednesday–to make the world a better place by putting aside generations-old conflicts and seeing one another as people. Then, to take those lessons home and help bring about peace.
Wednesday marked the first day of the 20th summer of the Seeds of Peace International Camp.
Timothy P. Wilson, Director Emeritus and special adviser to the program, gave the teens a more modest goal. “Be the best human being you can be,” he said. “I didn’t name any ethnicities. I didn’t say anything about your nation.”
“That’s all. There’s no one asking you to do anything big,” Wilson told them.
