We learned about the Peace Pole project years ago from a local kid’s club called the Junior Peacemakers. We inherited their wooden Peace Pole, but it got so weathered in the open air that we decided to replace it with a new Classic White vinyl Peace Pole.
About the event:
The Baha’i Community of Harlingen held a dedication of their new Peace Pole on Saturday, January 29, 2022. Twenty people attended. The event was held at the : Baha’i Peace Circle at Ramsey Nature Park, a haven of native plants, birds and animals. The program included the reciting of short quotations from the Baha’i writings about peace and a brief talk by a Texas Master Naturalist about the plants in the garden.
As a fun extra activity, each attendee was given a rock painted with a word such as “Collaboration,” “Patience,” and “Faith” that represented a quality we will need to develop to achieve world peace. Each person then placed his or her rock somewhere in the garden for passersby to find.
