Williamsport, PA is honored to have world peace activists Audri Scott Williams and Karen Hunter Watson as our guests in celebration of the United Nations International Day of Peace on Saturday, September 21, 2013. We plan to gather with our community at the Dr.Usui Peace Tower on the corner of Pine St. and Little League Blvd at noon, when the peace bell rings daily for several minutes. Audri will lead us in a statement about the intention and vision of peace that we share in solidarity with countless groups all over the world. We will then commence a one mile walk through downtown Williamsport, returning to the Peace Tower by 1:00pm. Invitations have been extended to Mayor Campana, State Representative Mirabito, and the general public.
According to Audri Scott Williams, We want this UN International Day of Peace to create a global collective experience of peace…something so simple, yet powerful enough to change the world. We challenge communities around the world to “Catch the Spirit” and plan an event, a meditation, a moment of silence to connect with us on September 21st.
On September 21st at 12 noon:
1. Walk for peace, dance for peace, conduct a mindfulness meditation, observe a moment of silence, sponsor a concert for peace …;
2. Begin your event by ringing a peace bell, followed by a brief interfaith prayer or ceremony;
3. End your event by ringing the peace bell and conclude with an interfaith prayer or closing ceremony.
* We encourage inclusivity/diversity of faith, culture and ethnicity, age, race, physical/mental abilities, sexual orientation and gender in all levels of participation.
It is that simple. Footprints Around the World 4 Peace & the Global March for Peace & Unity honors bioregions by supporting local events and sharing them globally. Through internet broadcasting, social media and other web based venues, global sharing and weaving together of the events of the day can occur -- unifying our passion for peace.
