  • Path for Peace, a half-mile benefit walk for the Children’s Peace Pavilion, will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Sept. 15. The walk will begin at 1001 W. Maple St. in Independence.
    On the Path for Peace, children will complete a booth and receive a stamp or sticker on their Passports to Peace in each of the four areas of Peace taught in the Pavilion. Once parents and children have completed the Path, the children can leave their passports at the table and pick up their peace bracelet. The four areas of Peace are:
    • Peace for Me – to increase inner peace through self-awareness, self-acceptance, and positive personal choices.
    • Peace for Us – to enhance peaceful daily relationships by increased understanding of empathy, respectful communication, conflict resolution, cooperation and reconciliation.
    • Peace for Everyone – to encourage openness and understanding of others while celebrating the diversity of the human race.
    • Peace for the Planet – to examine humanities planetary responsibility to serve as stewards of our natural world.
    Booths include child ID kits, personal and bike safety, peace rubbings, planting seeds, viewing a fire truck, carnival type games and items to buy. Booths provided by Independence Police volunteers, the Health Ministries Association, Outreach International, Sustainable Hope, Community Garden, the Independence Fire Department, the Children’s Peace Pavilion and several local Community of Christ congregations.
    The entry fee is $10. If children bring in donations they have collected that equal $10 or more, they will not have an entrance fee. Only cash and checks will be accepted. For information, visit www.kidpeace.org or call 816-521-3033.
