September 21st will be the International Day of Peace.
Today I read in our local paper about a project which may appeal to those of you who are teachers or Scout Leaders, as well as to others. It is called Pinwheels for Peace. A local art studio is hosting the construction of pinwheels, which will be displayed in a local park in Cape May - or at the homes of anyone who wishes to make them and display them.
This is NOT political. It does not necessarily deal with the conflict of war. Peace is something that can be found within us all. And it is also peace as opposed to the violence we see on TV, or read about in our newspapers, and which has become almost the norm these days.
There is a website here where you can read all about it, and which provides a template and instructions for pinwheels, along with suggestions and further explanation. http://www.pinwheelsforpeace.com
It's pretty short notice. But a nice idea, I think.
