September 21 International Day Of Peace

Today is the International Day of Peace, a global call for ceasefire and nonviolence. From the United Nations website: The UN invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.

A Million Minutes for Peace is a multi-faith initiative to pause at noon and pray for peace. You can sign up for the pledge: "On September 21, I will pause at noon and, in my own way, pray for peace. May my one minute, magnified a million times, begin to change our future."

However you choose to commemorate this day: by studying about peace, praying for peace, thinking a positive thought for peace, or taking part in a service project in your neighborhood, may we all join together in a spirit of goodwill and work to create a more united future where all of us can live in peace and security.
