EARTH DAY -- 1998
Friday, March 20
The Earth Day Ceremony at the United Nations in New York will feature the ringing of the Peace Bell at 2:55 p.m.EST -- the beginning of Spring. At the same moment (8:55 p.m. in Austria) the Peace Bell at the United Nations in Vienna will ring. This will be a time for people of all creeds and cultures to join for a brief two minutes in silent prayer, or reflection:
One global common moment celebrating life with dedication of heart and mind to think and act as responsible Earth Trustees. We are one human family and have only one Earth.
Peace and the care of Earth begin in the mind. On Earth Day we can think, pray and plan what we will do to restore and renew the wonder of life on our planet. A "New Day" when differences are forgotten as we share the wonder of nature's new life and new beginning.
Radio and TV world-wide are requested to provide live coverage of the United Nation's ceremonies so we can all participate.
