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 will never forget the day When people were killed Those people will pay But we shall pray for the people who were killed We shall pay respects Those people will be in our heart that will never tare apart. We will honor the people And we will never forget them we shall pray we shall shed our tears and remember those people We will remember those kids who were young and kind But the bomb made them blind We shall pay our respects
