John Lennon asked us to “give peace a chance” almost four decades ago. Today, war continues around the globe, and some people still regard peace the way picky children do Brussels sprouts. Get hip to harmony today at the KC Rally for Peace on the corner of 95th Street and Quivira Road in Overland Park. The peaceful are invited to sing, chant, dance and carry signs on the sidewalks in an effort to spread a hopeful message. Idealistic organizer Jordan Sparrow says, “By spreading peace in our communities, we can spread peace in the world.” Canned food donations for Harvesters Community Food Network will be collected. The rally runs from 3 to 6 p.m. For more information, see myspace.com/kc_protest.
