On May 1st we gathered together for our fourth year to rededicate our Peace Pole. Students and staff pass by the pole everyday on the way to school. The inscription on the pole says “May Peace prevail on earth” in eight languages.
Our pole is one of more than 200,000 standing in every country in the world. The idea of a Peace Pole began in Japan in 1955 by a man whose country experienced the atomic bombing on two of their cities.
We joined with people all over the world who want our world to be at peace. In rededicating our pole we are asking that we may be filled with peace, living as brothers and sisters and harming no one.
