Dear friends in peace,
Sending you the report from Slovakia:
September 15th this year was a great day for 120 children including their teachers and parents supporting Peace activities.
We celebrated the 20th aniversary of the 49th Peace Pole erected on Peace Mountain which is 1242 kilometers high. Peace Mountain, in Peace City is located in Kosice, the east part of Slovakia. Peace City is visited by many foreign tourist every year-most of them are Japanese.
The activity was held to celebrate the upcoming IDP- “International Day of Peace.”
The World Peace Flag Ceremony took place for European COUNTRIES and relay standards for all COUNTRIES was presented.
It was a special occasion for all participants to see the 15 year old ribbon on the standards. They were from the project in 2001-the LONGEST PEACE message in the world–it is a 3700 meter long ribbon with the message, “May Peace Prevail On Earth” in different languages.
This year’s activity was finished with reading peace greetings for schools in European COUNTRIES.
