21st September… #PeaceDayProject2014

*********HAPPY PEACE DAY*********
We hope that you enjoyed our week-long project dedicated to a much-needed cause…PEACE!!!

Now, onto POD’s event.

Sunday…Peace Day…

Recording artist, Akon will headline the Peace One Day Celebration at Goma International Airport in celebration of this most important day. There will be a multitude of other performers in support of Peace Day, and the 15 year journey that has made this day… a day of empowerment… a day of kindness… a day of gentleness… a day of love. No one can deny the power of love. In essence, it is all there is.


Sunday…in the village.

Here is our collage of villagers and their expressions of peace on every level. Special thanks to Mayor Andy Steingold and Fire Department Captain, Ray Duke for your participation in our #PeaceDayProject2014.

It is with deep gratitude to this list of villagers that helped us with this project.

We had an amazing and uplifting time working to promote Peace Day. Tune in tomorrow for one more peace post for 2014. Keep it goin’ ya’ll!!!

Now, the quote we have used for the last 3 years. There is nothing better than this. So it’s a threepeat!!! As we said at the beginning … three times a charm … so we hear.

If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.
~Lao Tzu

May you have peace in your mind…peace in your heart…peace in your core…always.
