Netherlands 4 June: Amsterdam - Nijmegen
Happiness and Happinez
The principal from the school told a local newspaper, "The message of the Peace Run really touched the children. When the runners left the school we felt their visit was a great stimulus."
Happinez is a beautifully designed magazine whose content focuses strongly on spirituality and conscious living. They have an estimated readership of half a million people.
Eveline - adjunct editor-in-chief - received a Torch Bearer Award on behalf of the whole Happinez team for their great work to spread peace, harmony and goodness through the content of their magazine.
The beautiful door has just been renovated and renewed. It depicts an image of Mother Mary and shows episodes of her life.
Also present at the ceremony was Simon Kolkman, a former Olympic silver medallist and world champion in rowing. He brought his children along.
This tower houses a carillon, which played the Peace Run Song in honour of our visit. Amersfoort houses one of the only two professional carillon schools in the world. The other one is in Belgium.
