a global voice
of peace prayer
Dear Friends and Loved Ones
It is surrealistic to see and hear the words “America Under Attack” flashing across the TV screen this morning. Is this the real movie, no sets, no special effects, no actors…. Real People, in Real Time?
On this day
May we hear the sounds of Peaceful Silence
As we Pray
For all Countries, Lands, Cultures, and Peoples from all Walks of life,
To Lay down their Arms of Battle
Lift up their Arms of Peace…
Embrace the wondrous Diversity of us All
Behold the awesome Oneness of Creation…
A Global Voice of Peace Prayer
Invites You to
11 minutes of Prayer at 11 am New York Time …
11 represents the date and is a symbol of the 2 World Trade Towers side by side,
11/11 is also a symbol of Peace
SEND OUT every ounce of your LOVE LIGHT as ONE PEOPLE
to the sites in New York, Pentagon, Pittsburgh,
and wherever there is war
A GLOBAL VOICE of Love Light EMBRACING all those spirits buried there,
those who are injured, their families, and
the planet who have suffered a great loss
Let the RAYS OF OUR LOVE LIGHT
EMANATE from those sites out
to the far reaches of the UNIVERSE
with an energy so powerful
that it will shift the planet’s axis
to one of PEACEFUL CO-EXISTENCE
Blessings on our Planet…In Peaceful Spirit…Gylian Solay, MS

Key Biscayne, FL
Remembrances & Reminders
As event organizer for A Global Voice of Peace Ceremony at the Village Green, the town park, I visited the three local schools asking children to express their thoughts, feelings, and visions about 9-11 & Peace for the ceremony.
On the day of the event, children, teachers, and residents, gathered in the park to prepare 3,000 white sand bags ringed the park’s perimenter. Each filled with one candle to represent those lost lives. One child was moved to place 9-11 written in candle bags on the center green. An amazing sight.
1st through 8th graders from the 3 local schools contributed over 400 pieces of the most heartfelt expressions of insight and depth.
As MC of the evening’s ceremony, I dedicated the evening’s program entirely to the children’s voices. The “Greatest Love of All” played softly in the background as 25 children personally shared their inner most thoughts, feelings and insights of 9-11 and Peace.
Over 700 people gathered on the park grounds, listened with respect, amazement and tears.
At the end of the ceremony, I asked everyone to disperse in silence and imagine peace within themselves, with their families, community and the world. The song “Imagine” played as the skies opened up with thunder, lightning and rain.
A Children’s Global Voice of Peace was heard this evening.
