Poem from Peace Pals youth, Bridgeport, CT-USA


This poem was written by a 6th grade student from Blackrock Elementary School in Bridgeport, Connecticut.  

Peace is when you hear your breathing.
You go to your happy place.
You don’t think about destruction.
You think about love and kindness.
This is what we say and practice in Peace Pals.

May Peace Prevail on Earth.

We wouldn’t have to say that if we had Peace on Earth!

We stay in our happy place for as long as we can.

We think about waterfalls and animals.

We think of love and kindness and it comforts us one and all.
