Since the cre­ation of mankind and the first re­port of death by bru­tal force of Abel by his brother Cain in the world’s al­most per­fect his­tory book, the Bi­ble, man has been at war.

We are sure from these early vi­o­lent days there has also been some­one call­ing out for peace.

This Fri­day, the U.N. and groups like Rotary In­ter­na­tional will cel­e­brate In­ter­na­tional Peace Day.

Here locally, the Cov­ing­ton Rotary will cel­e­brate this day by hon­or­ing students from the lo­cal Montes­sori as they hold their an­nual peace pole cer­e­mony.

Lo­cal Ro­tar­i­ans, led by their pres­i­dent Wayne Pugh, will present peace to­kens to the students.

The pub­lic is in­vited to this cer­e­mony at the school, lo­cated at 4108 Sum­mers Street in Cov­ing­ton on Fri­day at 2 p.m.

Peace truly does be­gin with each of us, and we salute the students of our lo­cal Montes­sori school and our lo­cal Ro­tar­i­ans who were built on a con­cept that as mem­bers, they fol­low ev­ery day: Is it the Truth? Is it fair to all con­cerned? Will it build good will and bet­ter friend­ship? Will it be ben­e­fi­cial to all con­cerned? For their ef­forts in re­mind­ing us all that peace is a goal we should never aban­don, we’d like to thank the students of the Cov­ing­ton Montes­sori School and the lo­cal Rotary mem­bers.
