Peace flame



Banshidhar Medeirs (above), of Hawaii, arrives in Kennebunk on Friday, Aug. 10, to close out a 90-mile leg of the Peace Run, an 11,000-mile relay of a dozen runners, circumnavigating the continental U.S. to promote the vision of “global oneness.” Staged every year since 1987, this year’s run started at the United Nations building in New York City on April 10 and ended there Aug. 15. For more information, visit www.peacerun.org. At right, Andrea McDead, of Ireland, a tourist visiting Boston traveled to Kennebunk for the day and happened to be on Main Street when the Peace Run came through. She quickly grabbed the torch and asked to be photographed with runners, from left, Sadhman Mordik, of Ukraine, Medeirs, and Nikolaus Drekonja, of Austria.
