In recognition of Canada's 150 years of confederation, Canadians of all ages and backgrounds heeded the call to share their story of peace for this collection.
These are their stories…
Stories of individuals finding and creating peace within themselves, with friends, with their Creator, with Canada, and with others – even where peace may be difficult to imagine.
Stories that are expressed in prose, in poetry and song.
Stories that are joyful and funny; stories that are sad, heart wrenching or difficult to accept; stories that are illuminating and inspiring.
Some stories take place in the school yard, others in homes and communities, still others on the international scene documenting Canada’s role in development and diplomacy.
We are honoured to bring you this collection and hope they inspire you in your journeys of peace.
