  10. Hi everyone,
    Thanks for putting forward a innovative and motivational vdo. Really a good thing to learn from a 11 year boy with a great thought and pure heart.
    Sports are really a source of spreading good health, a effective tool of developing cooperation and brotherhood among the players. Even our national team of cricket or hockey u see has people from all caste and religion and when they play they are 1 nation. Similarly when they play with other countries it spreads love and peace. We all literally know names of all apponents players even from Pakistan.
    Thats the message.
    Love peace and a ray of hope in the midts of war and crises.
    A good job by mac. We should pramote it from our heart. We can arrange cricket or similar other events to spread a smile on everyone’s face.

  11. Innovative idea of using soccer ball as a means of peace. Such game changing ideas should be used widely.
    Rotary, red cross & other social organizational should encourage such out of box idea & implement them worldwide.
