Pangea Day

As I begin writing this post, we are 187 days 6 hours 44 minutes and 56 seconds from Pangea Day. Why is that significant? Because this is my call to my school community to unite and submit a film.

"Pangea Day taps the power of films to strengthen tolerance and compassion while uniting millions of people to build a better future." On May 10, 2008 the world will unite through a simultaneously broadcast program in an effort to assist in healing our world's conflict. They will broadcast films, speakers, and musicians that offer powerful glimpses into our lives. No longer will they rely on a few to dictate the message broadcast to millions. They are calling on citizens from across our globe, from you and I, to submit films about our lives. The films may show hope, fear, freedom, success, compassion... almost anything.

At Chets Creek, we have a story. We have a story of freedom, diversity, hope, acceptance... Are you ready to get on board? Click on Pangea Day, read about its purpose, look at the contributors list, watch their sample films, then come see me and let's make a plan for film submission. One school can help bring a better future... let's get started.
