About 300 people came out to join in the music and art celebration of the International Day of Peace, during the Campaign Nonviolence Week of Actions. This family friendly festival, held at the site of the World Peace Bell in Newport, KY, focused on the right of all children to peace. Activity highlights include dances for universal peace, face painting, name tags in many languages, opening and closing circles, children’s drum and choir group from North Avondale Montessori School, a group reading of the Proclamation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, peace art and peace activities for children, John Rodgers and the World Peace Festival Band, and the ringing of the Peace Bell at 4:00. It was a wonderfully diverse gathering of people sharing a common vision of a peace-filled future.
