Have you ever seen a peace pole? They are poles, found across the world, and they say “Let Peace Prevail on Earth” in different languages.
The Peace Pole Project is the official project of The World Peace Prayer Society. It was started in in 1955, in Japan of all places, by Masahisa Goi. He decided to dedicate his life to spreading the message of peace in response to the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
After we moved to California, the little one and I were running errands one day. I parked to go into the post office and what do I see in front of me? A peace pole! I was completely surprised to see it.
Since that day, my mother in law found one on a walk one morning and sent me a picture. Have you seen a peace pole? I know they are all over.
