On the 32 annual "International Day of Peace" as established by the United Nations, a group of faculty, staff, students, and friends gathered by the International Fountain at Seattle Center.
The group met at noon around Seattle University's peace pole and signaled by bells began prayer in their own style and way for several minutes. Bells signaled the end of the time of prayer and all created a sign of peace on the lawn with rose petals.
