Peace For One Day

Today is National Peace For One Day, a day set aside for peace. September 21 is an idea of a film maker who had a vision for just one day and September 21 st has been recognized for this event ever since 1999. I'm Happy to take part in the tenth year. Madame is on the Peace committee at her school, all the elected are to make a poster, a snack (she chose a cake, all the others made sugar cookies, but not Madame, nooo!), and a shirt. Guess I'll be driving her to school today, which she HATES!


And since the boys undershirts come in multiple numbers, we have made other shirts for people in her chosen group, the 6th graders. Each person on the committee has a grade, of course Madame has 6th, of course...!

Madame made them with a few of her girlfriends from down the road, our neighbors, they are home schooled and were delighted to help.


I'm hoping there are a few smaller students like her, otherwise I'm stuck with 6 "Peace for one day" t-shirts. C&G Design.

Well if Madame is not just like her mom Dawn when it comes to creativity! Honestly I don't know how you find the time my friend! How cool that she is involved in all of these wonderful activities!! I am off to check out your previous post and once again playing catch up. Great cake Madame! Love the colors and all the decorations and the t-shirts are awesome!

Great project! I was just thinking last night, no matter who is President, no matter what the year, it seems we always have our babies (I can say that, I have a 20 year old 6'3" "baby") are being sent off to war! What the heck is up with this line of thinking? Too bad the powers that be won't let a woman be president! Can you tell I just can't get over what they did to both Hillary and Sarah? That is NOT a political statement, it is a "give peace and women a chance" statement. I didn't know about this day, but I'm celebrating now, too. Good for your daughter and her friends.

I'll have a piece of that peace cake. It's so good to know, that children are aware of this special day, and are encouraged to participate. Madame did an outstanding job on her projects. Like Debbie, I'll say, I just don't know hwere you find the time? Have a terrific day Dawn. Hugs, Kathleen

Peace, even if just for a day, is a worthy cause to celebrate. Cake looks yummy.
