Peace Poles are handcrafted, individualized monuments constructed and installed all over the world as symbols of Peace. Their singular goal and purpose is to spread the message "May Peace Prevail on Earth." Poles are found all over the globe from the Pyramids in Egypt, to the North Pole in Canada, from Gorky Park in Russia, to Angkor Wat in Cambodia from Cincinnati, Ohio to Janesville, Wisconsin.
Sometimes Peace Poles are dedicated to individuals who have given themselves to the cause of world peace. Jimmy Carter, Mother Teresa and the Dalia Lama, all have dedicated Peace Poles.
Can we get behind the idea of a Durham Peace Pole?
We got word of this project from a friend of friend who helped dedicate and install a new Peace Pole in Rwanda.
