Peace


The windows of the State Office Tower in downtown Nashville glow with a message of "Peace" during the holiday season. Note the the lights are on in all of the offices, but that the workers draw shades in certain offices to darken the windows that are part of the message.

I cropped this photo closely because there were light poles between the building and where I was standing, and they're pretty distracting. The "P" actually extends down a few more floors, as you can see in the photo to the right. I didn't use a tripod.

When we first moved to Nashville in 1995, the tower "broadcast" a daily message or design via the windows. In 1996 or so, they stopped doing it to save energy, but during the holidays, the messages return.

Very nice, I am glad they are saving energy, but also glad they still do it during the holidays.

They have the right idea. That surely covers all religions and maybe the people that are not so religious.
