Campaign Nonviolence Organizer Chantal deAlcuaz reported that they held their CNV vigil on Monday 9/21 and maintained a joyful presence during the morning  in downtown Anchorage.  They held a sign that read, “9/21: Happy International Day of Peace.” Her companion greeted passers-by with a heartfelt, “Good morning! Happy International Day of Peace,” as she handed out the flyer shown below, who’s main message was a beautiful poem about the connectedness of us all. As an aside, it was the first time in her experience with public demonstrations that a passer by decided to thank them by bringing them hot chocolate 🙂

Remember, We Are One

We all drink from one water
We all breathe from one air
We rise from one ocean
And we live under one sky

Remember
We are one

The new born baby cries the same
The laughter of children is universal
Everyone’s blood is red
And our hearts beat the same song

Remember
We are one

We are all brothers and sisters
Only one family, only one earth
Together we live
And together we die

Remember
We are one

Peace be on you
Brothers and Sisters
Peace be on you.
