Starting with “Making peace with Mother Nature,” painting rocks for a peace mandala installation, nature hikes, and singing “Building Bridges,” families enjoyed Prescott PeaceBuilder’s morning in the park. Thursday, they gathered at the plaza downtown for the third annual candlelight vigil with around 150 folks of all ages, children with peace pledges, some singing along to a ukulele and accordions to peace songs, and some silent meditation. In between they discussed astonishing works, books and films, about folks raised in refugee camps suffering massive war trauma yet refusing to hate, and inmates finding a way to inner peace. The Prescott library displayed marvelous books and the mayor city proclaimed Prescott to be honoring the International day of Peace. Prescott PeaceBuilders look forward to more opportunities to work toward their mission to educate and inspire people of Prescott to believe in and work toward a peaceful world.
