Universal Peace Day brings people around the world together to share their vision of peace and to transform a remembrance of horror into a rededication of life. The legacy of Universal Peace Day, sponsored by Art For The People, began in 1984 in Central Park, where Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary performed before a candle lighting ceremony at the moment of the Hiroshima bombing. Over the years, Universal Peace Day events have taken place in numerous NYC locations and all over the world.
RING A BELL WHEREVER YOU ARE
PLS PASS THE WORD TO FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD.
