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.


A big booming
Mad, sad, death,
Someone in your family died
I feel sad for them
Those dark days
Aren't over swept
Us off our feet
God help us to 
Overcome 1945
September 21st
The P-E-A-C-E Day for us!

— Ryan T.
