International Day of Peace

September 21st is the International Day of Peace. Did you celebrate? It's ok if you forgot... it can (and should) be made up every day :-)

The kids at the school, elementary through high school, have been working on, and discussing, peace projects and topics for a while now. The school held an assembly with a moment of silence and statements about what the children thought of peace. The school also sang their peace song - it was very beautiful. Unfortunately, my battery didn't make it that far into the assembly, but the school website has photos and a recording of children singing the "CAC Peace Song".

Here are some photos I managed to catch:

Beautiful art by the students...

The art work is beautiful. Its nice that the school did something to celebrate Peace Day. Getting the kids out of class for something meaningful like that is nice.

I celebrated by cursing the Nats at the game against the Padres.

Does that count?
