Developing the Peace
The Peace Labyrinth at the Common Ground Garden in Sayville, NY
This Peace labyrinth was a gift to a little unused community garden. It added a presence to an underutilized area and became the jewel in the center. Now the entire garden development is used for community gatherings such as theatre, concerts, yoga and movies. What was unnoticed became a marker for the community and in its center, the labyrinth is an accepted tool of growth.
Take a look around on your walk today, what lies dormant that could be spruced or polished enough to find its way to a new or more productive use that would be for the benefit of the many?
“I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that people want peace so much that one of these days governments had better get out of the way and let them have it.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower
