Ribbons for Peace
Marble Collegiate Church, Manhattan. Prayers for Peace.
These Ribbons have been hung on this fence since the 3rd anniversary of the US attacking Iraq in March, 2003.
Gold ribbons represent prayers for the families and friends of the service people who have lost their lives. As people die, more ribbons are added.
Blue ribbons represent prayers for those in Iraq, for the families and friends of the Iraqis who have lost their lives and for all who have been wounded.
Green ribbons represent prayers for peace.
“The toll of human pain and suffering is impossible to measure.” I read these words are on a plague displayed behind the fence, along with a statue of Norman Vincent Peale, “Minister of this Church from 1932 –1984.”
