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.
Terror From Above Just a normal day in a quiet place but when the alarm sounds people race to find cover, to find shelter to find a place were they are safe. Hiding with loved ones crazy with fear. Terror from above has taken its toll. not one person there can find their soul. Most are dead others scared for life and not even mothers can recognize their own flesh and blood. Hibakusha tell it all
