Hawaii Promotes CNV and Afghan Peace Volunteers!

Posted by Ryan Hall

By Liza Simon // On Sept. 24th organizers gathered for Peace Day Hawaii in Pearl City.  Liza  in collaboration with the Afghan Peace Volunteers of the Borderfree Nonviolence Community Centre in Kabul, Afghanistan sold Blue Scarves, a symbol of unity and peace. Wally Inglis also attended and helped promote Campaign Nonviolence!

There was a lot of good interaction with people– especially the teen volunteers who warmed easily to the #Enough campaign.   I let them choose “prompt cards” with single words or phrases to complete the thought…like “bullying in school” or environmental damage” etc..  So I flipped it a bit to #More with prompt cards like  “compassion” “forgiveness” etc …And they were great about talking into the tape recorder with thoughts et al on peace.

I also refurbished a chair from the street and made it into a “throne of peace” and had a sign outside the booth.  A special treat– A shakuhachi player came by and played a lovely peace piece for us!

See Liza’s blog for further reflection on Peace Day Hawaii here!
