PEACE Students Participate in Postcards for Peace
The Peace Program participated in a Veterans Affairs Canada initiative called Postcards for Peace. The goal of this initiative is to link today’s youth with veterans in a personal way and to help youth understand the significance of the sacrifices and achievements of Canada’s Veterans or Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members. The students at St. Albert Learning Centre created their own unique postcards, complete with an art piece as well as a personalized letter to a veteran in an Ontario long-term care facility. The class especially wanted to pay tribute to veterans who would normally be honoured in Remembrance Day Ceremonies, but who will have to stay isolated from such gatherings due the global pandemic. It is a simple gesture and a significant reminder that, although the world is changing, we can still recognize the selfless courage that brought us PEACE.
