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.


We have to spread peace,
peace is important,
we shouldn’t make wars,
we shouldn’t make violence,
we should be healthy and wealthy,
we shouldn’t have robberies,
peace is what everyone needs.
No wars!
No violence!
Peace is important!

— Christina T.
