International Day of Peace

Today is International Day of Peace, established by the a United Nations resolution in 1981.

Today is a day for global cessation of violence and war. Sounds like a good goal to me. Events are scheduled in hundreds of countries to promote the end of war and violence. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon rang the Peace Bell at United Nations Headquarters on Friday to mark the day. Today a moment of silence will be observed at noon.

What can you do? Tell world leaders your thoughts about Peace in a text message. Use the word "Peace" then write your message to 69866. Or send a message.

Webcasts of UN celebrations are available here.
