Ring the bells and speak out for peace throughout the land. It’s Sept. 21, and hence International Day of Peace. Since 1982, the world has marked this United Nations-established day in an effort to promote “practical acts of peace” around the globe. 

From the Peace Day Web site:

 

Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, or just sitting in silent meditation. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event. The impact if millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, is immense.

International Day of Peace is also a Day of Ceasefire – personal or political. Take this opportunity to make peace in your own relationships as well as impact the larger conflicts of our time. Imagine what a whole Day of Ceasefire would mean to humankind.

Do something on this International Day of Peace. Any practical peacemaking act will help the cause. Remember, it’s all about making a more peaceful world. Take part.
