Akvilė Naikauskaitė, a law student at Vilnius University, seen here in the photograph, contacted me and asked if she could use the 12seconds for Peace videos as a part of a presentation that she is giving on Legal English terminology; her subject being war and peace. 12seconds for Peace of course, fits perfectly into this context, giving as it does, a whole plethora of views and expressions on the subject of peace. We can't help much with the war aspect, but peace - we've got it covered!
If you have somehow missed these two ground-breaking videos that will soon be screened to the Vilnius University law students, then this is the perfect opportunity to bring them both to your attention. Here is '12seconds for Peace - The First Ten Minutes' and '12seconds for Peace - Ten Minutes Later':
It is a real pleasure to be able to offer this project out in this way - to help educate others, to bring the message of peace that you have all helped to create to a wider audience and of course to promote this project further. Akvilė, I am sure will also be encouraging her fellow students to contribute to the project. 12seconds for Peace has already made some headway in Lithuania over the last few months and it would be wonderful to receive more videos from the country that is right at the heart of the European Union. Peace must, after all, begin in the heart.
We wish you much success with your presentation and your continued studies Akvilė, and thank you for taking 12seconds for Peace into the classroom!
