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.
I see hurt people that died Was alive and nice I see cars that blew up A bike I think if I was there I would try to make it a safe place I think the day would be better If the boom landed over there I think they should move to another page I feel sad and bad for the people I don't like the people who did that I feel happy that half of the people were alive.
