WELCOME TO THE NOBEL PEACE LAUREATE PROJECT
September 21 is International Peace Day.
You are invited to a quiet gathering that will be held at the American Nobel Laureate Park in Alton Baker. Meet from 3-4 in the Peace Park by the Duck Pond (beyond the restrooms) to celebrate teaching peace throughout our needy world. This event is the Finale to the Eugene City of Peace Week's worth of wonderful events
and is on the official designated world day of peace by the United Nations.
September 21st Events
• A meaningful time of peace education for adults, kids, families, and civic, school and church groups at the American Laureate Peace Park.
• Springfield Teacher JoAnne Allen and an Eleanor Roosevelt enactor(retired Bethel teacher Lura Pierce) will connect the songs and peace presentations in an orchestrated, but informal program. Expect to hear kids' visions of peace and songs from several sources and all three school districts.
Expect a reading of the kid-friendly International Declaration of Human Rights.
Expect to sing and experience a surprise or two!
• On the actual World Day of Peace as designated by the UN, the purpose is to emphasize the human right to peace. Through the support of peace education and hope for the future, our community will celebrate with the world.
If you want to prepare ahead of time, do two things:
1. Watch YouTube: "Pray for Peace" by Reba McEntire. Perhaps this song and the peace gestures will surface sometime in the hour of peace. Be prepared.
2. Spread the word in print. Invite friends to the event. Compose a tweet, use Evite, text the Mayors, call a neighbor, or send this blurb to other church/civic groups.
