International Day of Peace isn't as fun as Christmas, as glamorous as New Year's Eve, or as romantic as Valentine's day but I think it is far more important than all those days put together. In 1981, the United Nations General Assembly established the International Day of Peace, to co-inside with it's opening session, with the hope of bringing awareness to the importance of peace in our world. In 2001, it was set aside as an annual day of non-violence and cease-fire across the globe.
"Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples." ~ United Nations
This year, the theme is "Partnership for Peace - Dignity for All." It is hoped that humans, across all segments of the world's population, will put aside their differences and work towards a lasting peace for all.
No matter what activity you choose to do that day, do it in the name of peace. It will add to the earth's "good karma" which, in turn, will help to push our planet towards a nicer, safer, saner place for all sentient beings.
So mark your calendars and remember to do something next Monday to honor the cause of International Day of Peace. This message is so important that I am asking you to pass along this blog...or write something of your own. Let's get the word out and make International Day of Peace 2015 the biggest and best day of the year!
