Why Blue? Former Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson won the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in establishing United Nations Peacekeepers, who wear blue as a symbol of peace as they perform their work around the world. This day will focus on the main message "BE the change!". Mahatma Gandhi helped to lead India, now the world's largest democracy, to independence with very little violence. Gandhi said, "Be the change that you want to see in the world." Wear blue today in your school, community and workplace to show that together we CAN be the change in making our communities safer and more respectful places to live, learn, work and play!
