Cayman Islands’ 1st Peace Pole- The Caribbean

Sunday, September 6th, 2009

August 26th, 2009

Joining students for the unveiling and planning of Cayman’s first Peace Pole in the George Town Dart Park last week, Minister of Community Affairs Mike Adam has called on residents to come together to sow seeds of peace in homes, on the job, at school and in the wider community. The Peace Pole was the brainchild of five students who had participated in the Empowerment and Community Development Agency’s (ECDA) summer film project which looked at discrimination. Speaking at the event on August 26ht during the Peace Pole ceremony, a prominent international symbol of harmony, the minister said “We have to stand up for peace-promoting principles such as cooperating with the police and becoming our brother’s and sister’s keepers. Let us commit to joining these students in taking a stand for harmony and saying no lawlessness and violence.” 

Inara Myles, one of the students who spearheaded the Peace Pole planting, said, “The pole symbolizes the oneness of humanity and our common wish to have a peaceful world. It reminds us to think, speak and act in the spirit of harmony!” Fellow-student Daniel Connolly-Foster explained that Cayman’s first peace pole has the message ’may peace prevail on earth’ written in English, Spanish, Taggalo, and Hindi, representing some of the key languages spoken in Cayman. The remaining students involved in the project, Ana Olson, Jenna Munruddin and Megan Ebanks read a peace poem they had written and led the audience in the songs Send it On and Heal the World. A video produced by the students as part of the summer film project and entitled Stop Discrimination was also viewed before the unveiling. “This is a powerful reminder in the midst of the negative events that have recently beset our community that our best hope for a bright, peaceful and prosperous future rests with our young people,” Mike Adam stated.
