Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. The Day’s theme for 2016 is “The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace.” The General Assembly unanimously voted to designate the Day as a period of non-violence and cease-fire. The United Nations invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.

Go out into the world and purposefully practice kindness, love, and tolerance. Pay for the items for the person behind you in line, prepare and deliver hygiene care packages to a homeless shelter, buy a stranger a lottery ticket, mow your neighbors\’ lawn, pray, meditate, encourage cease-fire and non-violence to name a few. Peace begins with love!
