Think Peace's Annual International Day of Peace (IDP) has been held in Houston, Texas for the last three years. Each year celebrates the idea that we can build cultures of peace, justice and healing while shunning violence in all of its forms. Each year we use the symbol of the peace crane to emphasize this peace and this year is no exception. This year is represented by several peace cranes flying in formation, with colors representing the diversity of the flight and its people. The theme this year is PARTNERSHIPS FOR PEACE: DIGNITY FOR ALL and rather celebrating one day, we endeavor to take the week to find ways to bridge generational and cultural barriers. So, join us September 21-26, 2015 at Houston community venues and practice what is preached through the hearts and minds of the peace community.
