The Poetry for Peace contest was held from 15 September until 14 October 2011. The winners were anounced at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York.
Below is one of the contest entries.
The ability to change, to cure, to heal, to give..... The tolerances to accept, to wait, to believe.... The environment, draw a smile in the broken spirit, dried the wet tears... The environment is the freedom wing of PEACE. The greatness of the Great endures the unendurable.... The vision of the Light ignites the dark caves.... The love of the Lover cleaned the cure, healed the past ... The mercy of the Universe draw a new pathway for the broken spirits... The word of Peace is the Great Lover that Light Universe, The word of Peace is the environment, The environment is the freedom wing of Peace
