Finding peace in Paris. The Wall for Peace
In today's image we're featuring the Wall for Peace in Paris for the International Day of Peace. Since 2000 this structure, created by artist Clara Halter and architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, has been inspiring visitors to write their own messages of peace and place them in gaps intentionally created for that purpose.To mark the day, hundreds of events around the world are being held including peace fairs, music concerts, meditation and more. The UN declared it a “day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples”. One of the events today is at the UN Headquarters in New York, where the secretary-general will ring the Peace Bell and participants will observe a minute of silence.
