    Everything changes in 1985-1986. First the Death of Samantha Smith and then next year the Chernobyl Disaster. If she still alive I wonder what could she react about Chernobyl Disaster.

    These were dangerous times. I was in the military then and if you have never heard of it look up 'Able Archer' here on you tube . And you will see just how dangerous.

    Back in 1984, The Disney Channel aired a special called "Samantha Smith Goes to Washington: Campaign '84". This special was hosted by the late Samantha Smith, who served as a special correspondent for The Disney Channel.

    Before Samantha went to the Soviet Union, kids our age thought the Russians were the most evil people on the earth. After she came back and told us they were just like us and didn't want war, things started to change. Rest in Peace, Samantha. You made a difference here.

    No matter if she was used by the Soviet Propaganda or not, I think she did a lot, put effort to make the World a better place, and is really sad how her story ended. I think we need a new Samantha for the conflicto between USA and North Korea...

    Her look is that of a very intelligent girl. Her sweetness and idealism will never be forgotten. I was born in 1972 too. She won my heart, and today, no one can deny their role in the history of the world.

    Very sorry for this sweet, cheerful girl who so early passed away. Of course the true reasons we may never know, but without politics there has not been. Politics has always been messy and always will be, unfortunately, as politics always pursues his goals and dirty no matter where it occurs in the USSR, now in Russia or USA. But the ultimate goal is one suffered by innocent people. And I'm sure that in America a lot of good, intelligent people who like in Russia if you want peace and goodness in the world. Only now the policy of the white house want to achieve world domination over all countries and people. Everyone has their own path in life and the white house chose the path of destruction rather than creation. According to statistics, who is fighting the most in the world? Only the United States, who interferes with the sovereignty of other States, only the United States. Who provoke wars and conflicts, only the United States. And suffer from them vmeshatelsta ordinary people do not have a policy nor any relationship. It is sad that the white house does not

      The world would not have been able to keep itself on its axis of rotation. Samantha would have shaken the world up. It is so ironic how the brightest stars burn out the quickest. What a tragedy. We were deprived of such a special gift way too soon...

    Every time I watch shows like this or read about this Amazing little girl it just plain blows me away. She handled this program like a grown woman in a little girls body. She had such confidence and articulation for someone of Twelve. It is my opinion that she was the first person to make any realistic headway into ending the Cold War. What is totally awe inspiring is that this Eleven year old school girl from Maine showed the Adults how silly they were being by stock pilling nuclear bombs. August 25th this year will mark 30 years to the day when God recalled this special little Angel to heaven only He knows why but I could hardly blame him. Come in Angel Samantha your mission is complete your work on earth is done He must have said on that terrible day 30 years ago. I personally believe that is precisely what She was an Angel and a guiding light who laid the bedrock to ending the Cold War God Bless you my precious Angel I can't wait to meet you one day in heaven

    Samantha was loved and admired in the USSR! I was 6 when she came to my country. Firstly, I thought she was the most beautiful girl in the world :) Then, I was amazed at her courage and how free and mature she was in her behaviour. It was a shock to find out about her death. You are still remembered, Samantha. You won our hearts.

      I think you are mistaken. I believe she was 11 years old when she came to the USSR.

    I was born in the fall of 1986, a year and a few months after her death. The more I read about Samantha, the more I wish that bad things didn't happen to good people. She accomplished so much goodwill in the very short time she was given.
