USA 11 May: Orlando, FL - Orlando, FL

Today we visited Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer at his office in Downtown Orlando. He was very kind and made a proclamation for the World Harmony Run when it came through the city of Orlando last May 3rd but because of his busy schedule he couldn’t attend the ceremony at Nap Ford Community School.

When we arrived at his office, four children embassadors from Nap Ford Community School where waiting along with the Executive Director of Nap Ford, Mrs Jennifer Porter-Smith and a member of her staff. We proceeded outside to a nice big balconi, outside his office. He showed us his garden, where he had planted tomatoes, herbs and a banana tree! He gave the children tomatoes as a momento.

Afterwards, we lit the World Harmony Run Torch and David Morrison explained to the Mayor: “This torch has traveled through 6 continents and hundreds of countries. The flame represents each individuals aspiration for world harmony and peace. By holding the torch, please add your own personal feelings for harmony and it will be passed on.” We took some nice photos with Downtown Orlando in the background.

We went back inside and I explained to Mr. Dyer about the founder of the World Harmony Run, Sri Chinmoy, who wanted to celebrate people around the world who are an inspiration by making a difference in our community and that is why the World Harmony Run gives a medal called Torch Bearer Award.

Nap Ford Community School had nominated him to be a recipient of such honorable Medal. Mrs. Porter-Smith continued explaining that the school had nominated him “Because of his leadership and commitment to the City of Orlando, championing causes that impact the children and citizens in our city.” She then proceeded to give him this well deserved medal.

We didn’t want to leave without giving a small gift to Mr. Dyer because of his kindness and generosity. Nap Ford Community School gave him a T-shirt that they made for the whole school when the WHR visited their school, the art work in the T-shirt was made by one of their students.

We also presented Mayor Dyer a gift of Jharna-Kala painting by founder of the World Harmony Run, Sri Chinmoy. I mentioned that his paintings have traveled the world and an original can be found in prestigious museums and have been exhibited around the world, like the Museum of Modern Art in St. Petersburgh, Russia, the UNESCO among others.

Thanks to Mayor Buddy Dyer and members of your staff for taking the time to meet with us. We are very grateful.
