Peace Day celebration downtown on Saturday

 

A holiday created by the United Nations, "Peace Day" will be celebrated around the world on Saturday, Sept. 21, and will have its own celebration in Mountain View this year.

Mountain View's Civic Center Plaza will be the site of the fourth local celebration of Peace Day, organized and supported by the Baha'i community of Mountain View.

The Saturday event will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and will include performances from different cultures and local choirs as well as activities for children. There will be speeches by Mayor John Inks, John Rettger and Vera Michalchik of Stanford and a talk by U.N. delegate Ana Maria Sanchez.

Sure to solve all of our problems. If only we had more peace rallies in the US, the Syrians would stop killing each other, terrorists would stop trying to kill Americans, near everyone would stop trying to kill Israeli Jews, etc.!

Typical liberal guilt time- and effort-waster.

@Resident: You would have been much better off if you would have stopped with your first paragraph.

And honestly, why would advocating for peace be a bad thing?

Just another attempt by the libtards to slander GW Bush's hunt for WMDs.
