The Miracle of the peace sign appearing on the lawn of the US Capitol
continues. If you haven’t heard the entire story, on Sunday, March 25, James
Twyman focused a peace ceremony commemorating the Season For Non-Violence in
Washington, DC. During the ceremony, which was held on the west lawn of the
US Capitol, the “Children’s Cloth of Many Colors” (for more info on this
amazing project please visit http://www.communitiesofpeace.org) was laid gently on
the grass in the form of a giant peace sign, and the ceremony took place in
The next day the sponsor of the event, Gerry Eitner, received a concerned
phone call from the US Capitol Police saying that the grass where the cloth
lie was now discolored, leaving an enormous peace sign on the lawn.
This morning the police department called back with more information. They
believe that some type of fertilizer attached to the quilt caused the
discoloration. In reality, however, there was nothing attached to the
Children’s Cloth except the prayers of those present at the ceremony, as
well as thousands of people from around the world. Subsequent calls to
professional lawn care companies indicated that there is currently nothing
on the market that would cause such a sudden overnight change. In fact,
witnesses reported that the “peace sign grass” is actually longer and
greener than the rest of the lawn.
Has a miracle visited the US Capitol? If so, then what is the message?
From James Twyman:
“I believe that this miracle was caused by two factors. First of all, there
were hundreds of thousands of people focusing on the Capitol ceremony while
it was taking place. At one point we actually held hands around the peace
sign and called upon the energy of all those people from around the world,
feeling their presence around the quilt with us. The intent of so many
people can be a powerful energetic force and seems to have catalyzed a
change in the actual earth causing the grass to grow greener and longer
overnight. Second, I believe that in some way and for some reason the earth
is literally giving us a sign. This is a critical point in the history of
the world. If we don’t begin turning our thoughts and actions toward peace,
for both humanity and the environment, a deep crisis may be around the
corner. For me the peace sign on the lawn of the US Capitol is both a
warning and a symbol of hope. I’m hoping we’ll listen and begin working for
Photos of the grass as well as the peace ceremony will be online later today
or tomorrow. PLEASE HELP SPREAD THE WORD BY PASSING THIS EMAIL TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.
