This International Day of Peace.
Have to thank Sue Dreamwalker for giving me a day’s notice that today, Saturday 21st September is the 2013 International Day of Peace.
As the web site of the International Day of Peace (IDP) offers:
Anyone, anywhere can celebrate Peace Day. It can be as simple as lighting a candle at noon, sitting in silent meditation, or doing a good deed for someone you do not know. Or it can involve getting your co-workers, organization, community or government engaged in a large event.
The impact if millions of people in all parts of the world, coming together for one day of peace, is immense, and does make a difference.
International Day of Peace is also a Day of Ceasefire – personal or political. Take this opportunity to make peace in your own relationships as well as impact the larger conflicts of our time. Imagine what a whole Day of Ceasefire would mean to humankind.
Can’t argue with that or with this year’s UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s message for today’s International Day of Peace.
So don’t forget!
Wherever you are in the world, take a minute off at mid-day and be at peace.
Oh, and hug a dog!
