Light a candle for peace
Light a candle for love
Light a candle that shines all away around the world
Light a candle for me Light a candle for you
That our wish for world peace
Will one day come true
Light a candle for peace
Light a candle for love
Light a candle that shines all away around the world
Light a candle for me
Light a candle for you
That our wish for world peace
Will one day come true Sing peace around the world
Sing peace around the world
Sing peace around the world
Sing peace around the world

Ever since September 2009, children from The Children’s Garden have sung “Light a Candle for Peace” in celebration of the United Nations’ annual International Day of Peace. Beginning in New Zealand and finishing in the Hawaiian Islands, the song “Light a Candle for Peace” is sung continuously for 24 hours by Montessori schoolchildren around the world.
“Our school is excited about joining the many other Montessori schools around the world,” stated Directress Jean Passantino. “It is a chance to connect our regular lessons of encouraging the children to treat each other with respect and dignity. To show compassion, patience, and kindness to others are values nurtured in the Montessori environment as the children work together each day for a peaceful classroom. In the words of Maria Montessori, “The child is both the hope and promise for mankind.’”
