Springfield, OH Spreads Peace at CultureFest

Posted by Ryan Hall

By Peggy Hanna with the Clark County Peace Alliance

We had a booth at the Culture Fest where hundreds (maybe thousands) attended.  We gave out seeds for planting Poppies for Peace, and DumDum suckers labeled “Lick Violence.”  Dozens of kids signed our pledge to “practice nonviolence toward themselves, to others and …to foster a just peaceful world.”  They took their pledge home to post on their refrigerator.  Talked with parents and encouraged them to talk with their kids so they understood what they were signing and would remember the pledge on the refrigerator when getting frustrated or angry, etc.
