We really enjoyed running in the rain today. When you are happy and feel gratitude for being part of the Peace Run, everything else goes away.

Harita finished the miles for our team today. Great job!

We arrived to our first ceremony at Casa dei Bambini Montessori and the team had to split into 3 groups to conduct different ceremonies at the same time. It was fun spending time with the little peace lovers in kindergarten. Here talking to our little friends about the Peace Run.
