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 day of loss How did this happen? They have taken this too far. Why did they drop the bomb? A flash of light was all it took before Our cities lie in ruin. We have all lost.
— Daniel Zahzouhi
