Celebrating the 3 Peace Corners in the Washington D.C. area. At Byron House Assisted Living in Potomac, Maryland; EOFULA Spanish Senior Center in Washington D.C. and Work for Peace Orphanage in Washington D.C. The Peace Corner: ’ÄúSee the world with global eyes--love the world with a global heart-- understand the world with a global mind--merge with the world through a global spirit’Äů The idea for Peace Corners was originated by Barbara Gaughen Muller, whose radio show, Inspiring Conversation, is broadcast worldwide. She and her husband, former UN Assistant Secretary-General Dr. Robert Muller. Here is a photo collage of the PEACE CORNER with elders and kids, their views for PEACE and for a better world.

Lucy (a resident from Byron House in Potomac) said "I would like to help children and their education. I remember when I was a child my mother was always a very happy person and was always helping everyone. We were always very happy at home and it was difficult to be near my mother and not to be happy. I am a happy person and learned to be this way because of my mother. "

The Byron House has its own Peace Coner now. Four elders and two staff members gathered in the living room to talk about Peace and better ways for a better world. A beautiful book by Robert Muller "Decide To For A Better World" of poems, was discussed and then we started to ask this question "What can you do to make this world a better place?"
