The Authors for Peace event held on International Peace Day (Sept 21) has officially entered the record books. The event started at midnight on Sept 21 and was streamed live on the interenet for 24hrs, showcasing the voice of 75 poets from across the globe… and as a result the event has entered the Guinness Book of Records.
But what’s even more important, is the sense of unity the event created. I remain humbled to have been a part of this event and I watched for many hours of the day taking in the words and wisdom of the poets who gave voice to the event.
I hope that Authors for Peace continues for many years to come… events like this are needed now more than ever.
