This is also an Internationally recognized date to give honor to Intentions for Peace around the world. Hundreds of Cities and Countries will be celebrating together on this same date.

PLEASE COME AND PARTICIPATE IN THIS VERY SIGNIFICANT, POSITIVE WAY TO GIVE PURPOSEFULNESS OF FOCUS IN BRINGING PEACE TO OUR WORLD.

I have included a background story about one of the schools of children who participated in the Peace Pals competition. The facility is located outside San Francisco. The teachers are both former Chinese professors of art education who have come to the United Sates. The works of their students were so remarkable in not only technique of design but in subject matter that they stood out as far superior to 80 % of the other entries.

The directors' daughter, Helen Yang, talked about the awareness of how the arts in other cultures are so highly valued as a means of communicating values, idea and beliefs from one generation to the next that persons are killed for this critical means of thinking and dialog.

GIVING HONOR AND RESPECT TO CULTURES OTHER THAN OURS IS ALSO ONE OF THE FOCUSES OF INTENTIONS FOR PEACE IN THIS EXHIBITION AND COMPETITION. Participants of the CAC feel privileged to have volunteered time to participate in this significant event.

We hope to see many of you at the Ice House on the 21st of September
