Together for peace is this years theme for International Peace Day. Respect, safety and dignity for all.
In Norlane and in our world it is important now more than ever that we continue to promote peace in our lives, our communities and neighbourhoods. It is encouraging to find ways we can commit to doing no harm to ourselves or one another, to encourage the learning of peaceful and nonviolent methods to transform all types of conflict and acknowledge that systematic forms of violence such as poverty affect all of our lives.
This will be a great event to celebrate peace in our lives and in our community.
Great community choirs and music groups will perform. FREE BBQ, because food brings us all together. There will be peace art activities to join in on. We will play games like basketball and soccer and we will have a peace pole to plant in our local park.
Gold coin donations will be accepted for the peace pole.
“We must resist cynical efforts to divide communities and portray neighbours as ‘the other’…Together, let us transform fear into hope.” ~ United Nations Secretary-General
