PEACE! INTERNATIONALE DAG VAN DE VREDE

PEACE! INTERNATIONALE DAG VAN DE VREDE

Het is Internationale Dag van de Vrede vandaag (en de eerste dag van de Vredesweek). We vonden een stukje prachtige poëzie over vrede. Zondagse zoetigheid.

World Peace and Harmony
 

Peace is glory, peace is dignity,

peace is love and peace is amity.

 
Birds fly freely high up in the blue sky,

Flowers bloom and cherish when spring arrives.

Dews settle on leaves with deliberate happiness,

As bees buzz excited around their hives.

 
Why aren't we as happy as they are?

So free, so elated

and no complaints at all.

 
Take the morning paper in your hand 

and you'd find destruction all over land,

going around in evil bands 

making peace and harmony banned.

 
War, conflict and destruction everywhere

arresting our accord even while asleep 

Oh! God now is so very rare

And is peace today that hard to keep?

 
People are killed 

every now and then.

Oh! Isn't there anyone who's skilled,

to place the eminent gem

of tranquility and unity.

 
I woke up today morning,

to enjoy Mother Breeze.

She says if we'd stop roaring

and take everything with ease,

we'd surely succeed in gaining world peace

 
As trees and flowers sway

and the wind runs over my face

It brings in a new ray of hope

that world peace can still return

 
“May the World Live in Peace and Harmony”

PS Weet jij waar het V-teken van vrede vandaan komt? De 'V' staat symbool voor victoire in het Frans en vrijheid in het Nederlands. Het werd symbolisch gebruikt tijdens het verzet tegen de Duitse bezetting. Daarna begon Winston Churchill het V-teken te gebruiken als teken van overwinning; het werd zijn handelsmerk. Tegen die tijd was het V-teken gevestigd en gebruikten we het allemaal.
