Valentine's Day 2010: A tribute to peace builders

Published in

Canadian Mennonite University students put a twist on Valentine's Day this year by displaying a poster recognizing that St. Valentine was a Christian martyr who suffered and died for his faith. "How can we celebrate love without peace?" asks the poster.

A basket of peace pins invites students to commemorate Valentine's Day by wearing a pin depicting an of a peace activist.

Flanking the St. Valentine poster are images and stories of selected peace builders from history: Martin Luther King Jr., Anna Politkovskaya, and Mohandis Gandhi.
