Tag Archives: International Day of Peace

Monday, 09/21/09, Public Square

150px-International_Day_of_Piece_2006The International Day of Peace occurs annually on September 21. It is dedicated to peace, or specifically the absence of war, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone. It is observed by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples.

To inaugurate the day, the “Peace Bell” is rung at UN Headquarters. The bell is cast from coins donated by children from all continents.

I would like to see every day of every year dedicated to peace.

How was your weekend?  Ready to start a brand new week?  Let’s make it a great one!
