Today we were thrilled to have the opportunity to visit four schools in and around Dubrovnik with our International team. Samalya from Germany led the way to our first school, Os Antuna Masle, in Orasac.

Danas smo bili jako uzbuđeni jer smo imali priliku posjetiti četiri škole u Dubrovniku i okolici sa našim internacionalnim timom. Samalya iz Njemačke vodio je tim do prve škole, O.Š. Antun Masle, u Orašcu.

We were invited to enjoy some great cultural performances by the children.

Uživali smo u divnim nastupima u kojima su sudjelovala djeca.

Imali smo predstavnike iz puno različitih zemalja, bilo je zabavno kada su djeca pogađala tko je od kuda.

We all went outside so the children could join millions of children all over the world by holding the torch and sharing their prayers, hopes and dreams for peace.

Mi smo izašli van kako bi se djeca pridružila milionima djece širom svijeta držeći baklju i dijeleći svoje molitve, nade i snove za mirom.

Otišli smo van posaditi maslinovo drvo kao drvo mira. Na slici su Abhinabha iz Nizozemske, Vishvesha iz Hrvatske i Jadranka Dabrovic predstavnica škole. Neka ovo drvo izraste veliko i snažno podsječajući nas sve na važnost kultiviranja mira u vlastitim životima.

We were met on the way to our final school of the day, Os Lapad, by many enthusiastic running children!

Predstavnica O.Š.Lapad, Mirjana Kaznačić, oduševljeno je primila baklju mira od Biskupa Uzinića.

The Bishop gave a very sincere and heart-felt speech saying that World Peace can only be built by starting with ourselves. He said we have to respect our parents, brothers, sisters, every person we meet on the street, on social networks, and those who are weaker than ourselves. He shared his wishes for peace to be planted in every human heart and extended to all people. The children enthusiastically applauded his message, as did the Peace Runners!

Biskup je dao vrlo iskren govor od srca, kazavši da Svjetski Mir možemo izgraditi samo ako počnemo od sebe. Kazao je da moramo uvažavati naše roditelje, braću, sestre, svaku osobu koju susretnemo na cesti, na društvenim mrežama, i one koji su slabiji od nas. Podjelio je svoje želje mirom da se posade u svako srce i prošire na sve ljude. Djeca su oduševljeno pljeskala njegovoj poruci, baš kao i trkači Utrke Mira!

We planted a Peace Tree in the school grounds with the help of the Bishop and the children.

Posadili smo drvo mira u školskom dvorištu uz pomoć biskupa i djece.

Završili smo ceremoniju darivavši O.Š. Lapad sa zahvalnicom i dvijema slikama od Sri Chinmoya sa naslovima "Voli djecu" i "Svjetska Harmonija".
