Today is International Day of Peace. Did you know?
I didn’t really until today. Super E’s school celebrated outdoors with peace songs and dance at 11:15 to coincide with Sing Peace around the World. If you click on the link, you can hear the song that they sung.
The school in general practices peaceful connections, conflict resolution and community building while providing a safe and beautiful environment in which to learn. I am so happy that they were able to celebrate this special occasion, it’s essential for what they are trying to teach the children..
I am sad I had to miss the school event so I thought I’d share some peace and love instead, with a celebratory giveaway!! These little peace tags are made from painted, sewn and embellished canvas.
* to enter leave one comment on this post (tell me which color you like most).
* I’ll announce FOUR winners later this week.
* Good Luck and Peace!!
UPDATE!!! The winners are…
