Short stories of nonviolence and reconciliation from the lives of real people capture the excitement of action, the joy of seeing from new perspectives, and the encouragement of witnessing small acts that make big differences. Artwork by children ages 6-20 from Chechnya, Russia, and around the world illustrate each story. They call us to pay attention to "those tiny, invisible, molecular moral forces that work from individual to individual through the crannies of the world."
