World Peace Day


Jeremy Gilley, the man who orchestrated the naming of September 21 as World Peace Day, came to Dallas on Sept. 13. His visit was co-sponsored by Today Marks the Beginning, The Dallas Peace Center, and Umbrellas for Peace. Jeremy and Karen Blessen (artist, co-founder of Today Marks the Beginning, and Jeremy's collaborator on the children's book, Peace One Day) visited over 2000 students at Franklin Middle School, Parish Episcopal, and Ursuline Academy, and then signed books at the Lakewood Theater in the evening, prior to the showing of Jeremy's movie, Peace One Day. Students LOVED Jeremy, and responded enthusiastically to the man and his message. It was a great day that resulted in all three schools planning their future celebrations of World Peace Day, the sale of over 125 books, and most importantly - the possibility of peace being validated to many young peacemakers.
