Children's Peace Camp Explores Peace Heroes

The Dayton International Peace Museum enlisted nearly sixty children, mentors and staff for this year's Peace Camp being held June 15 - 19.  On Friday, the final day of camp, 88 campers, staff and their caregivers gathered at the Dayton Woman's Club for the final program and sendoff "Peace Heroes Luncheon."  It was quite an inspiration!

We raised $72,000 in our May 2nd Peace Heroes Walk at RiverScape MetroPark.  See photo highlights taken by Patsy Ferrell taken of the June 7th Celebration Concert at the Neon below (click here for other photo highlights).

You took something very precious away from me. I will never get to talk to her ever again. I will never be able to hold her again, but I forgive you, and have mercy on your soul.
