The peace sign was designed in 1958 by British artist Gerald Holtom for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. We have been in business at The Happy Place location on King Street in Boone for almost 13 years. In that time our country has been through several Republican and Democrat presidents, yet still there is war. Sometimes it seems as if there could be war right here on our US soil, because of strong unwavering beliefs of our residents. Unfortunately, according to Wikipedia the United States is involved in many ongoing wars around the world. You may not believe that a symbol has much power, but symbols evoke feelings, and feelings evoke the powerful energy of thought. Next, my dear friends is action. The peace sign to me symbolizes feelings of love for my fellow humans. I hope it does the same for you. Let's get into Action! Get out there and spread some Peace and Love Today!!!
