Roots of Peace
Hosted by ABC7's Cheryl Jennings
Today we are going to talk about something most people in this country don't talk about or even think about, because we don't think it affects us here in America. If your child's playground or soccer field had just one landmine in it, what would you do? Would you let them play there? What if a landmine were in your garden or on your farm?
Roots of Peace is a local charity that is dedicated to removing landmines in war torn countries. You'll see how they've engaged children here and around the world in a show of global citizenship. You'll see why they have gained the support of some of the most prominent vintners in the Napa Valley.
