Croatia 4 October: Brela - Drvenik

Peace is beautiful

We are in the core of the Croatian Peace Run 2019 with still lots of energy among the team!

The first students to welcome the runners with open heart, smiles and drawings are those of the Primary School "Dr. Franjo Tudjman".

If we wish to achieve Peace we need to give the example... We will never achieve peace if we wait for the others to start first.

The students prepared by themselves some words about peace.

Which continent are the children leading to in the game? Europe!

These teachers give a wonderful example to their students. Thank you so much for everything!

Such a blessing to go to school by the beach, surrounded by nature!

Getting recharged by Mother Nature.

In order to make a strong group one must be strong inwardly, with some time for the oneself...

It's a pleasure to wait for the ferry by the beach.

The Primary School "Drvenik" is delighted at the visit of the international team from such different countries! The kindergarten children sing and play joyfully for the runners!

Peace is strongly needed to avoid more memorials for those who died on the battle fields...

The cat also seems quite interested in Sri Chinmoy's project for Peace!

Running for more Peace!

Thank you for a great meeting!

The school gives refreshments to the runners that really appreciate them!

Will they be on the Peace Run cards as runners one day?

Bringing joyful smiles to the locals in the village.

At the School "Gradac" the students enjoy asking questions to the runners and having deep conversations about Harmony in each one's environment. They are eager to know how the team gathers together, how many kilometres was the maximum that a team could run in one day (350 km in Australia!) and what's the most dangerous animal that we have met on our journey!
The team shares with children, teenagers, teachers and school-keepers their jobs back home. What do they do when they do not run?

Finding a shelter for the eyes in the bright sun.

This little girl cannot hold more happiness than that of holding the Peace Torch!

Thank you teachers for giving your example of peace to the students!

Running to the last school of the day.

In the afternoon the children of the Primary School "Oca Petra Perice" run with the Peace Run Team around the courtyard. They pay lots of attention to what the runners have to say and they reflect of what can each one of them do in order to make their worlds more peaceful.

Embracing the world...

Thank you so much for a wonderful meeting!

Enjoying the refreshments that the school has prepared for the team, the runners socialize with the cooks, asking them to make a wish for peace in their own hearts. Who knows how heavenly will be their next meal!

Saint Nikola Putnik protects the voyagers.

The Team enjoys a sunny meditation by the beach of Makarska. Wherever they go they bring their light and hopes for peace.
