Global Family Day
Many people want world peace, and many are trying to make the planet a better place. Global Family Day was born out of efforts to achieve world peace at the close of the 20th Century. The International Decade for the Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1997. The idea of a decade of peace was launched in 1997. It also included the publication of a book sponsored by Linda Grover, “One Day in Peace – January 1, 2000”. The day was so popular and gained so much attention that the United Nations decided to make it an annually held event starting in 2001. It was then called Global Family Day. Families who are happy in all aspects of their lives are the foundation of peaceful communities. You can have fun with your family and participate in activities to celebrate Global Family Day. These are some ideas. Healthy families will spend more time together, provide support and strength to each other, and build stability that can be transferred to others. One way to build strength in a family is to commit to having dinner together every day. Family members can strengthen their bonds by working together to achieve common goals. This can be done through communication and family meetings. Whatever you do, make sure you take notes of the stories that are shared and can be used to create important family memories. Movies that address important topics can help families grow. Seeing them together can encourage family members to discuss how they can make the world a better place.
