In a world full of conflict, anger, and anxiety, can’t there just be one day when we take a break from it all? One day, when we all get along? One day dedicated to peace?
Well, we have some good news! On September 21, an International Day of Peace (World Peace Day) has been celebrated every year since 1981.
The purpose is to promote the absence of war and violence around the world. The United Nations has declared that in combat zones, there should be ceasefires for 24 hours in order to provide humanitarian aid.
Imagine - no matter where you live in the world, we can all be unified in complete peace for a full day. Isn’t that a beautiful idea?
You may be asking, “What can I do to contribute to World Peace Day?”
You can do ANYTHING that makes the world a better place.
World Peace Day begins right now, with you.
