A Global Celebration of Peace!
Mattie’s 2013 Peace Tree & Poetry Activity
A GLOBAL CELEBRATION OF PEACE!
Neighbors from 30 countries around the world
– representing diverse faiths and ages and abilities –
participated in our annual winter outreach activity.
Some neighbors created peace ornaments
or peace poetry videos and translations,
other neighbors are now taking the peace tree
on a virtual global peace mission and tour!
(see below for list)
Please enjoy the peace ornaments and tree, and the videos
(English and translations) and printed translations of
Mattie’s “December Prayer” poem.
This is our gift to you.
You are welcome to download the ornament and tree images
and the December Prayer prints and videos.
Please share them in personal ways
with family and friends, co-workers and classmates.
(You may not publish or sell any of the materials)
