Celebrate the International Day of Peace!

“A peace is of the nature of a conquest; for then both parties nobly are subdued, and neither party loser.”  

                 – William Shakespeare, Henry IV, Part 2

In 1981, The United Nations declared each September 21stto be an International Day of Peace, an annual day of worldwide non-violence and cease-fire.   Since the first commemoration of the day in 1982, Peace Day has grown to include almost every community and nation in celebrations worldwide. 

This year’s Peace Day events begin with the ringing of the Peace Bell at the UN headquarters in New York City.  A moment of silence will be observed at noon and there will be a 24-hour global broadcast of Peace Day events around the world.  The Peace One Day celebration will include performances by internationally acclaimed artists in front of the Peace Palace in the Hague.

Check our website for a live broadcast of activities around the world.

Join in the festivities by locating a Peace Day celebration in your area or creating one of your own.  And maybe, just maybe, one day of peace will grow into 365.  

You can call me a dreamer ….
