We all live under the same blue sky. Our sky blue scarves indicate our desire to live together in peace.
The “Border-free Blue Scarves” project was founded by grassroots activists in Afghanistan. According to them, the blue scarf “represents our collective wish as a human family to live without wars, to share our resources, and to take care of our earth under the same blue sky.” Following the lead of these Afghans, World BEYOND War encourages everyone to wear sky blue scarves as symbols of peace and support for ending all wars. Rev. Bob Holmes, who lives in Toronto, has steadily organized events featuring the blue scarves to celebrate the International Day of Peace. Participants in Camp Micah also join him, each summer, to distribute the blue scarves. Bob’s 2016 visit to Kabul gave young people there a chance to welcome him as their guest.
