Princeton, NJ/ Tapinto —A 140 participant human peace sign formed by residents of Brandywine Living Toms River, Brandywine Living at The Gables and three other Brandywine communities, highlighted a joint celebration of World Peace Day, with 100 school children of YingHua International School of Kingston NJ. The goal was to mark a global holiday devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, within and among all nations and people.
World Peace Day encourages us to be kind to others and teach others to be peaceful. This November 17 holiday pursues the goal of peace everywhere. Throughout the history of the human race, long-lasting peace has been elusive. But, it is possible, and we should never stop working towards this goal.
“Our residents love connecting with the younger generation,”said Stephanie Gaber, Escapades Producer at Brandywine Living at Princeton. “This is our first intergenerational program since Covid; we have missed our friends at YingHua! Participating in events like International Peace Day enable our residents to build relationships with youth and teach them lessons of acceptance and growth. Watching both generations interact is a truly rewarding and mutually beneficial experience.”
The Kingston Fire Department participated and extended their truck ladder for aerial photo. After the peace sign was created, paper peace doves made by students and seniors were exchanged.
