Speechless

"Within are a myriad of voices from around the world all raised in prayers for peace. Turn this drum to spin them out into the universe."

Yes.

Peace. And not at the expense and waste of so many young lives.

This is so sad, but whenever I see those I can't help but think of Eddie Murphy in "The Golden Child"... (and how he rapped with one!)

An amazing object/symbol that needs to be placed throughout the world. I've never heard about this, is there a story behind it? Where is it?

This particular pease drum is on Whidbey Island, WA, in a little town called Langley. There are similar drums all over, though. I've seen them several times, although I can't for the life of me recall which culture this comes from . . . will get back to you. The beauty of the drum is that you can place your hands in the prints on the drum, feel the cool copper, and give it a twirl, it is breathtaking, really.
