Next To Me
It Starts Within, Artes Ferruni (Albania) The world has many problems and issues. Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to stand up for peace. Where does one even start? This video explores and emphasizes a very simple, yet crucial, answer to that question. Peace comes from within and the effects of inner peace are how we can stand up for peace. Next to Me, Breech Asher Harani (Philippines) When the Battle of Marawi happened in the Philippines in 2017, many Muslims migrated from Marawi to Mindanao. The migration caused children to transfer schools where they were bullied and discriminated against, especially in non-Muslim communities. This short story is inspired by the struggles that young Muslims face and the young heroes who stand up for them.
