International Day of Peace
The International Day of Peace began in 1982 with the ringing of a Peace Bell at New York’s United Nations Headquarters.
Peace is more than the absence of war. Conflicts with neighbours, family members and colleagues are more common and can disrupt our sense of peace. It is fitting to make peace today with just one person, even if it’s only with yourself. Refuse to light a candle, and then reflect, forgive, and be calm.
Do you reward your children for sharing toys with each other? It’s a great way for peace to learn how to resolve disputes without using aggression. Sponsored toddles can help raise money for peace charities and provide entertainment for the children. Bliss!
Not just celebrating peace, but building it is what peace requires. Everyday can be a day of peace, as you strive for harmony at work, home, and in your community.
