International Day of Peace

Post by Sunflowerpixie on Sat Sep 21, 2013 11:05 pm

September 21st is the International Day of Peace.

The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access. The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples. In 2013, for the first time, the Day was dedicated by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to peace education, the key preventive means to reduce war sustainably.

Thank you for the reminder Sunflowerpixie. Sadly, so many Sad wars are still going on around the world. The war in Syria seems to know no end, while the rest of the world stands by.
