International Peace Day

I was reminded at breakfast time that today is International Day of Peace - a day to focus on, reflect on and continue to work in whatever ways we can to promote peace. Barry decided to do a post on peace and I thought it would be good if I did too. So a few images of peace, for peace.

These are some of the many chains of origami peace cranes that are sent daily to Hiroshima Peace Park in Japan. We visited earlier this year and were reminded in so many ways, that we should keep seeking peace.

Tonight we will ring our Japanese temple bell, inscribed with the Kanji symbols for peace (hei-wa), sending peaceful thoughts and vibrations across the valley. In little ways, we try to live our lives with peace.
