How to promote peace? Wear a Peace Scarf

One way to promote peace is to wear a scarf which literally says "peace" or "shalom."

What aspect of peace speaks to you? Are you a personal peace model, a peace workshop planner, a classroom peace manager, a peace-talk visionary, a peace debater, or a global peacemaker? Is peace heavy on your heart or do you sing humanity's peace accomplishments? 

Designer Mary DeArment, in response to the recent terrorism in Europe and the United States, generated ten inspired designs made with the words peace and shalom. Refusing to succumb to the familiar feeling of helplessness, she embraced the concept of peace and put her thoughts and feelings into these ten patterns and color schemes. The titles themselves are provocative:


Peace out of Darkness --- Peace is Complex --- Peace is Subtle --- Peace is Soft --- Peace is Shalom: Reflect It --- Peace is Neutral ---Peace is a Flower --- Shalom x 32 --- Peace is a Puzzle ---Peace is Warm


The Peace Collection will be available in January 2016.
