Every year on the International Day of Peace, Good News Broadcast, led by Paul Sladkus, hosts the Peace Day Party in the northern triangle of Time Square in what is called Father Duffy Square.
Times Square is often called the “Crossroads of the World” where people representing a myriad of cultures and traditions come together in the heart of New York City.
WATCH and LISTEN to May Peace Prevail On Earth going out to the world from the heart of New York City Time’s Square!
The Peace Day Party was a three hour celebration with speakers from not-for-profit organizations, singers, dancers, musicians, a fashion show and the event even created “the biggest human peace sign” right in Times Square.
Along the front of the stage, our international Flags representing all the 193 United Nations Member States was decorated. The same flags have been all over the globe including the DMZ at the border of North and South Korea. Colorful messages of peace and a large banner with the words “May Peace Prevail on Earth” was visible on stage including a Peace Pole. “May Peace Prevail On Earth” on every Peace Pole is such an important phrase held in the hearts of every peace activist, thousands of school children, politicians, members of the military and are the words found on every Peace Pole across our planet.
Jim Dugan, from May Peace Prevail on Earth International, addressed the crowd during the Peace Day Party sharing the importance of being on the planet at this time and how the actions of each one of us are so important leading to lasting effects on the future of all life on this tiny planet. He also spoke about the work of May Peace Prevail On Earth International and the Peace Pole Project urging everyone in earshot to be a hero in their own lives and in the lives of those around them. The peace message, May Peace Prevail On Earth, was then repeated three times together by the thousands of people that were in Time Square at that moment. Those powerful words of peace rang loud and clear through the skyscraper canyons of New York City to be carried in the hearts and minds of those in attendance on that great day and well into the future, a future where we all must work hard so the message of “May Peace Prevail on Earth” rings into every corner of our world and the world of all those who follow in our footsteps.
