Unitarian Universalist youth make peace panel

The Unitarian Universalist youth have created a Peace Day panel as part of a Mother's Day celebration this Sunday.

The panel will be hung at the celebration at the fence on A Street near the railroad tracks at 9:30 a.m., May 11.

The Peace Fence Project honors the historical origins of Mother's Day in this country.

Unitarian Universalist participation honors the great Unitarian social reformer and suffragette Julia Ward Howe, who conceived the idea of a Mother's Peace Day in 1870 as a result of the horrors of the Civil War.

The Unitarian Universalist youth participated in this project to explore the relationship between creating peace and caring for the earth. Their hand prints remind people, "Earth peace: It's in our hands."
