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.
What I feel is...sad I hope there are survivors I hope people get better Skin burned Dead bodies No movement From people As I look at pictures... I feel sad, scared, and regretful Skin burning Buildings, collapsing Family crying.
