Setting the Stage for World Peace
I figured I would post something today about all the Cinco de Mayo celebrations that are scheduled to take place but then I came across all these busy, happy people setting up for a festival to celebrate an "International Day of Compassion and Peace and Harmony" and I just couldn't resist. This is event is taking place at San Jose City Hall and is sponsored by Lieu Quan Buddhist Cultural Center. After reading their mission statement on their website, I can't argue with any of their goals, they seem quite noble. Just thinking about all the beautiful colors of the flowers and paintings and banners and the two smiling men in their brown robes makes me smile.
