Sri Chinmoy Peace Run
 

Today we had a visit from a group doing a peace run. This peace run was started by Sri Chinmoy in 1987 to spread peace and love and volunteers from all around the world have come together since then to spread his message of peace. They have visited over 150 countries since it started. They carry a peace torch and we got to hold it and give our wish for peace. They kindly stopped in on their run to tell us about their work and the history of the run... We found out that Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa held the peace torch! We played games, danced and sang some songs with them. They even challenged us to a race! We really enjoyed the visit!!
