Harmonizing Our Differences

The Gateway to the Park Rose Community Labyrinth

There is a lot of heart and soul in the Peace Labyrinth at Park Rose Community High School in Portland, Oregon. The path way leading up in full of messages and the gateway that is pictured here in the shape of a turtle, symbolizes Mother Earth.

In building this as a grounding for the community, a community groundskeeper and volunteer activated six students to inspire initiative in the community to take time for themselves.

“We realize that we have all come from a direction… and are all on the same path… even if we are facing different directions or moving at a different pace.” Sharon DeWitt, Community Groundskeeper PHSCC.

The harmonizing of all the differences reminds us that we are all the same in many ways and where there are differences among us, there is an opportunity to find the unique peace.

“If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other.”
Mother Teresa”
