Read the following story to begin your quest for the Peace Prize.

THE MAGIC MACHINE

Little Tina and Tonto were walking about, it was March and a beautiful day
But the wind was so sad as it whispered its song
The world was ending in May

These little kids knew why the world had to end
Even small as they were they still knew
Because people around them were never content...
They fought, they were lonely and blue

So they wondered if somehow they might save the world
And prevent this terrible thing
So they went to the woods and there all alone
They made the magic machine

Now they took their machine 'round the world in the spring
To the leaders of men and of state
The world was so happy with laughter and tears, for it ended all anger and hate

All over the world they shared their new toy
People asked them just why they had made
Such a beautiful gift for the people of earth...this was the answer they gave

We wanted to make a machine that could show how easy it is to be kind
If it stopped the wars, if it made people smile
We were certain that no one would mind

It laughs and is happy for reasons so small, it plays in the meadows of green
It runs in the wind and its love will not end
An unbreakable magic machine

It may possible be that you do not believe
That this magic machine could come true
But if you are wise then you'll soon realize...
