Here is a video calling all viewers to join women on bridges around the world on Interntional Women’s Day, March 8th:
- You can join existing events or create your own.
- See you on the bridge!
This is an update to my previous blogs:
Join Me on the Bridge / Join Women on the Bridge is now a global phenomenon. The campaign has brought women, men & children together to build bridges of peace in more than 460 cities around the world.
In honour of International Women’s Day (IWD), March 8, 2012, Canadian Margaret Sharon Olscamp invites you to the following Join Me on the Bridge / Join Women on the Bridge event in Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada:
“Bathurst Bridge to Peace Join Me“
March 8, 2012 IWD
10 am – 4 pm
Margaret Sharon Olscamp: Phone 506-783-7944
“Global Bridge Walk … Women across the world are stepping out onto bridges again this year and asking for peace and justice.
Toronto, London, San Francisco … Australia … Japan … And yes even Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada.
The Bathurst group may be small … Maybe only one person at a time… But let it be known that women in Bathurst count too.
Women’s Day Event in Bathurst – All day peace walk on Veteran’s Bridge.
In honour of my dearly departed aunts, Lillian O’Toole and Stella Thibideau, both veterans of World War II, I intend to spend much of my day walking this bridge as well as the causeway leading to Queen Street along Riverside Drive and the Cove Bridge.
I invite anyone else to join me in celebrating the lives of gentle women of peace who had to live in a world that was less than fair.
Please join me walking the Bridges of Bathurst on March 8, 2012. Bring along a peace sign if you want. Please be respectful. This is not about protest it is about honouring the unsung peacemakers of our world.
Love and Peace to all on March 8, International Women’s Day
I suggest between 10 am and 4 pm for joining a group. Even if you spend five minutes … That is great … If you are working that day you might want to brown-bag it … Bring your lunch and we’ll eat together between noon and one while walking on the bridge.
Any other suggestions are welcome. Music is always welcome of course … Depending upon the weather … Instruments might not be possible. But we always have our voices. So if you want to sing … Come on out and sing.
And remember if you just want to walk alone and ponder … Meditate … Or whatever brings Peace to your soul … March 8 lasts all day and the Veteran’s bridge is never closed.“
