2005 Peace Calendar: Let Us Go Forward Together

Celebrate 50 years of WRL’s Peace Calendar and find quotations, artwork, and writings that help us move forward with our work today.

Change-makers such as Mohandas Gandhi, Aung San Suu Kyi, Abbie Hoffman, Rosa Parks, and Ani DiFranco, and groups like Children of War and Women in Black — among many others — speak to nonviolent activists through the generations. Our title, “Let Us Move Forward Together,” is taken from the Black South African call to freedom published in the 1961 peace calendar and included in our 2005 calendar.

1999 Peace Calendar: Young People Look at the World

1. What will happen if?
2. What will happen when?
3. What will happen when were if?

3 out of a thousand questions.

-- by John Owens-Ream, grade 4

In this calendar, children of many countries were asked to reveal in words and drawings what they saw in the world around them and what they'd like to see. And because children are natural poets, perhaps we hoped the sun and the moon and the stars were visible in their inner firmament.
