Veterans For Peace is dedicating a Peace Pole at Congressional Cemetery to mark the United Nation's International Day of Peace. The dedication ceremony will be held on Sunday September 20, 2015 at 2:00 PM. The pole will be dedicated near the pond in the cemetery.
We are inviting members of Congress, veterans, peace activists, students, clergy and others to participate in the dedication ceremony. The ceremony is actually being held one day before International Day of Peace which was established by the United Nations.
Congressional Cemetery is the burial grounds for one vice president, several Supreme Court Justices, many members of Congress and other famous people. Veterans For Peace is an international not-for-profit organization that seeks to abolish war. This ceremony has been planned for over one year. The veterans hope the message of peace will prevail in the Middle East.
The Peace Pole Says: May Peace Prevail on Earth in these eight languages: English, Spanish, Arabic, Hebrew, Chinese, Japanese, German and Choctaw.
