Clowns in World Service / Ambassador Clowns

on an Eisenhower People to People Ambassador China Tour with Patch Adams
When we play together with our inner child, we become equal, less complicated. We play in the moment uncomplicated by desires and needs. As an ambassador clown you see peoples’ hearts and souls. When people are joyful, you see such beauty in the human spirit. It is so sweet, the light that shines in the human heart. The Care Clown's job is to connect to that light, nourishes it and make it glow.
There is a Chinese proverb
If there is light in the soul, there will be beauty in the person.
If there is beauty in the person, there will be harmony in the house.
If there is harmony in the house, there will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.
