Vigil for Peace in the Middle East - This Evening

The Middle East Peace Camp for Children is sponsoring a vigil for peace this evening at 8:00 at the Middle East Peace Sculpture at the Broad and 4th side of Seattle Center - next to the Fun Forest.

Popular song leader Mary K. McNeill and her chorus, Arab and Jewish peace leaders, teens speaking for peace, a candle-lighting vigil, and writing messages of hope to people under siege in the Middle East are the main programs for this healing gathering. 

The Middle East Peace Camp for Children (MEPC) was established in 2002 serving Arab and Jewish families around Puget Sound.

The Middle East Peace Sculpture was created in the spring of 2003, under the direction of local artists Amineh Ayyad and Sabah Al-Dhaher.  Children from Seattle's Arab and Jewish communities
worked together to create the inspiration and image of the Peace Sculpture which was permanently installed in the Seattle Center Peace Garden on October 23, 2003.
