A day to focus on peace

It was World Peace Day at High Point Regional High on Friday, May 22. From 7:30 in the morning through 7 at night, the students thought about the world’s problems, its hot spots and what they might do to promote peace. They listened to speakers who have lived all over the world tell their stories and show their photos. Crayon drawings created by children in Darfur were on display. Students joined in activities in the gym that helped focus on peace; students played world music, and painted peace poetry on recycled cardboard. Hemp jewelry and T-shirts were for sale.
