March 14th, 2015
On March 14, 2015 a group gathered to plant the lovely Peace Pole we had been given. Four people came from California to be part of the ceremony and most of us had not met before, but immediately felt closely in tune with one another through our mutual desire to build a world at peace.
It was a loving, joy-filled event.
We wrote prayers to place inside the Peace Pole and then we prayed together.
We were each given a necklace with our name on it, made by a friend. The necklaces were used to greet one another in a special way.
The Peace Pole is planted in a container for now. When school resumes in the fall, the Peace Pole will be planted in the ground at Payson High School with prayers written by the students placed inside.
We are looking forward to the students’ participation in this event.
May Peace Prevail On Earth!
