The Lakewood Peace Stone, part of the National Coast-to-Coast 'Great American Peace Trail' and the 'Worlds Children Peace Monument' (WCPM) was dedicated at the new Lakewood Park as Official part of the 2013 International Peace Day Activities.
The Lakewood Peace Stone Committee thanked Rep. Marsha Fudge and Senator Michael Skindell (D) for their support for making the worthwhile peace project a success and Lakewood Mayor Michael P. Summers for making it a reality to the children of Lakewood! In the historic re-unification of the North Coast Community, as part of the Iceality Silver Revelation, North East Ohio Area has been 'branded' as the Home of the Environmental Art(s) Movement by the International Center for Environmental Arts (ICEA) as a 'Cultural Industry', to foster civic identity, cultivate jobs and tourism, and brand Ohio Environmental Arts and Culture District in the Bioregion.
"We now have the power to make this World a beautiful place one child at a time. Begin with your own child and watch how that child radiates towards the other Worlds children." says Ambassador Renate.
The “Worlds Children Peace Monument" (WCPM) and the “Great American Peace Trail" (GAPT) Projects are international, public participatory art projects designed to engage children with cross-cultural awareness in order to attain the common goal of sharing peace and diversity with their neighbors. The peace projects utilizing the Theory of Iceality on Environmental Arts, have direct community impact through neighborhood beautification, community and economic development while building self-esteem and hope in America. They will help to build better neighborhoods where everyone can live, respect and accept each other as they diplomatically negotiate errors and differences of prejudice and hatred and instill in its place the belief in the necessity of communication.
Gone too soon, RIP Fela, leave this cruel world in peace surrounded by angels leading you to Paradise.
Something I want to add, every night for the past 2
weeks I've seen a Cleveland patrol car #232 coming out of Parma on ridge road usually around 1:30/2:00am. What is a Cleveland patrol car doing in Parma at that hour?
The MetroParks Leadership have always appeared to me to be arrogant and elitist. They overspend and overbuild and overdevelop. Acquisition is important but preservation is more important. Education is important but should be done with minimal intrusion so that that which you are teaching about isn't spoiled to teach the lesson. It seams that the Motto is "Build it up and they will come". I love the park system. I have loved them since my child hood raised in Berea and taking walks with my parents in the Rocky River Reservation before the park built the building at the point. We would take walks and see small animals in cages along the trail. In many ways the parks have improved the experience but the long term goal, I feel, still needs to be how to get the public appreciate the outdoors experience for what it is- a natural event. I hate to see the parks go the way of our sports events have gone just to get peoples attention. Sports venues tell you when to yell. clap. boo, play music and have contests to distract us from the real experience all the while selling over priced food and merchandise to keep us occupied.
Funny we say this but had it been a bullied incident where the child did something to themselves we take pity. May it be proactive? Who knows
Honestly without knowing the details, if my baby girl was being bullied on social media, instead of my baby putting a bullet in her head I'd rather me go and confront this situation. It's quite possible that she had had it with school officials. I remember the days where my mother came to my school in the 80s to confront a student for doing the same. Now I don't know the particulars and I'm speculating but let it be my kid, and shits gonna hit the fan. Rather than me transferring my Child out or worse.
