Abut 2,100 gather to form human peace sign in Waikiki

By Star-Advertiser staff


An estimated 2,100 people gathered at Kapiolani Park at noon to form a human peace sign on Martin Luther King Day.

Today's attempt fell short of the unofficial world record for the largest human peace sign, set at the Ithaca Festival in New York with 5,814 participants. The record is unofficial because Guinness World Records said it never verified the record.

Eric Butler, founder of the nonprofit World Peace Plan that organized the event, said, "It may not be a world record, but I think everyone in the crowd felt the energy out there and enjoyed it. It's great because it meant coming in contact with people with a similar vision.

"I'd rather have 2,100 people there feeling peace, love and joy, than to have 6,000 complaining because it's too hot, it's taking too long, and are just not happy. If it's about the numbers, then all you have to do is go to a football game and gather everyone at the end."
