I didn’t know it until I bought a wall calendar today to help with my organization…or lack thereof… but written on today’s date is “Peace Day.” I had never heard of it, but according to Wikipedia,
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.
Apparently, it is the 30th anniversary of International Peace Day so I don’t know how I hadn’t heard of it before. Seems like a day that we should promote a lot more! Peace doesn’t have to be just about a cease in war…unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be an end to that in the near future, but, we should do more to promote this day in our communities, encouraging others to be better people and to live more fulfilling lives by helping others.
Everyone desires peace. It shouldn’t be celebrated on just one day. We can create a world that is peaceful one day at a time.
