One hundred participants gathered together on that day to honor our forefather’s vision, to encourage a co-creative vision of perpetual peace that would become a reality for all.

Each of the Commonwealth countries was blessed with a prayer for peace to prevail in their land and in the hears of their people.

Peace Rep Bockarie Enssah writes:

…”The ceremony was warmly appreciated by all participants especially those who were lucky to carry the flags of their countries… I pronounced the names of the countries followed by the prayers. We closed the ceremony with a peace song which I taught them. After the ceremony the flags remained in the meeting hall serving as a reminder to all to generate energies for the promotion of Peace.”
