International Peace Day was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 (resolution 36/67). It was first held on the third Tuesday of September, starting in 1982. Beginning in 2002, the UN General Assembly changed the date, setting September 21st as the date for yearly celebration.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all conflict, everywhere, stopped for a day? IMAGINE a world of peace. As John Lennon said in his iconic song of the same title, if we can imagine it, we can make it happen. Play the song, hold a peace vigil, light a candle, join hands and spread the message. A picture book version of this iconic song is available: https://t.co/4UNMtPv4xK https://t.co/MPVIEPOmnl
Peace to all nations – One. Day. At. A. Time.
