BENEFITING: PEACE NOW

THE STORY:

Throughout history, bullying in all its forms - from schoolyard fights to catastrophic international wars - has destroyed millions of lives. Tragically, the global reach and 24-hour accessibility of today's Internet and social media platforms make cyber-bullying an even more serious problem than traditional bullying with increasing numbers of victims each year.

One of the greatest ways to capture the attention and teach our world about bullying is through film. One healing film that goes viral can quickly impact more hearts and minds than one million classes on the same subject.

The Principle is a modern parable that addresses this destructive plaque of the digital age, cyberbullying. In the story, a wise master is called upon to moderate between two teenagers - a cold-hearted cyber-bully and his tragic victim.

In this unforgettable confrontation, the master delivers compassionate teachings that alter the bully and the victim's destinies and leave a lasting impact on the audience. The healing perspectives The Principle puts forth offer strong medicine for the harmful, us-versus-them thinking from which so much human conflict springs. 

Our strategy is to deliver practical wisdom embedded in drama that promotes kindness and compassion and offers real, lasting value to viewers. Our goal is for viewers to walk away with enlightened philosophies that ensure their communications and relationships stay positive and empowering and form the foundation of a truly rewarding life.

All donations to help fund The Principle are tax deductible through PeaceNow.com's 501 (c) (3) non-profit status. PeaceNow.com is gathering one billion signatures to enact a UN Global Resolution that creates peace departments in governments worldwide.

John's first film about the Middle East conflict, Admissions, won 26 international awards and was translated into Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew and Farsi and broadcast to 80 million people worldwide. James Cromwell, the star of Admissions, recently agreed to direct The Principle.

Thank you very much for your kind support of The Principle.
