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.
