International Day of Peace Sept. 21

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:23pm
The United Nations has set aside September 21st as an International Day of Peace. According to the UN the purpose of this day is to:

"to devote a specific time to concentrate the efforts of the United Nations and its Member States, as well as of the whole of mankind, to promoting the ideals of peace and to giving positive evidence of their commitment to peace in all viable ways… (The International Day of Peace) should be devoted to commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples. This date should be brought to the attention of all people for the celebration and observance of peace.”

The new Resolution added the call for the International Day of Peace to be a Global Ceasefire: "an invitation to all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the Day..."

Perhaps we can all hold a peaceful intention on this day to align our consciousness in the name of promoting worldwide peace.
