Paper Cranes

Poetry for Peace Contest

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.


People should have peace everywhere in the world.
Equality for everything in the world.
And the people have to stop making weapons.
Clear out the weapons in the world and in the.........
End there is peace.

— Abdo Alawdi
