The BC Peace Action group and Veterans for Peace dedicated a Children’s Peace Garden at Otsiningo Park recently in their effort to promote peace and find alternatives to war and violence. The Plaque features a quote from Martin Luther King Jr., “Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.” On Saturday May 8th, the day before Mother’s Day, a group of peacemakers, performers and families gathered at the newly created Children’s Peace Park within Otsiningo Park.
