Peace Lessons

Today is the 50th anniversary of the Peace Symbol. When I was in junior high school, circa 1990-1, one of my teachers told us that the symbol was anti-Christian, designed as an upside down cross with its arms broken downward, which is how Apostle Peter was crucified. Unfortunately it wasn't until years later that I learned that this was not the case.

whilst a student i worked in a saop factory during one summer. my job was to put the bars of soap in boxes and mark with a cross on the side of the box what scent the soap was.

Half way through my second day there I marked a box with a peace symbol instead of a cross.

And was fired.
