International Day of Peace

Today is a day of peace. It’s September 21st, the International Day of Peace. This is a day established by the United Nations back in 1981. Since 2001, this Day has been designated as a time for global ceasefire and non-violence.

The theme for 2016 is “The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace”.

There are 17 Sustainable Development Goals which were unanimously voted for and which are considered vital to establishing a peaceful planet. You can read more about these goals through One Search.

So be mindful and respectful of those around you today (just like every day!) and try to follow the words of two lesser known proponents of peace and “be excellent to each other”.
