To us, 1,000 Voices for Peace represents a fitting way to commemorate the Great War, a voice that serves as consolation and salve for the grief suffered and the hope it will never happen again. What better way is there to work on peace than with 1,000 unified voices? The purity of voice that touches people’s hearts.
This is the perfect way to commemorate and one that will stir many emotions. It is a commemoration in which, for once, countries are not facing each other with arms drawn but rather standing arm in arm on stage, singing for the same cause.
It commemorates not only the victims of the First World War, but also the victims of violence today.
