Why Peace and Harmony?

Peace is a strong sense of unity with oneself and within one’s own environment. Harmony is a deep and fulfilling connection with nature and with others. Together, Peace and Harmony allow us to overcome life’s obstacles and celebrate life’s joys. With Peace and Harmony, we let go of our egos and open our minds and hearts to the wonderful diversity that surrounds us. As today’s youth, we have the unique opportunity to shape the world into a more peaceful and harmonious place for ourselves and for future generations. When we communicate with love instead of hate, search for understanding instead of blame, and work towards lifting others up instead of putting them down, we are one step closer to achieving Peace and Harmony.
