age 12+

A great depiction of actual events that occur around the globe without true thought of consequences of negative proportions, all brought on by the greed of many. To show our children the right path of peace AND health we must show them the right way to move forward AND to have ALL MANKIND on ONE platform.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much consumerism
