International Peace Day
Date When Celebrated : Always September 21 st
International Peace Day seeks a global cessation of violence and war. Each year on this day, celebrations are held in hundreds of countries, all with the same goal in mind....to stop war and violence. Created and sponsored by the United Nations, this day seeks to end war, starting today.
The United Nations goal for this day is "a day of non-violence and cease fire". Wouldn't it be nice if this one day succeeded and spread, country by country, day by day, until there is no more war or violence. Can this goal ever succeed? Former Beatle John Lennon had the right vision in his song "Imagine".
