Honoring International Day of Peace

Let us honor peace within and outside ourselves. May there be peace in our hearts so we may have peace in our dwellings and in our world.

“On this International Day of Peace, let us pledge to teach our children the value of tolerance and mutual respect.  Let us invest in the schools and International Peaceteachers that will build a fair and inclusive world that embraces diversity.  Let us fight for peace and defend it with all our might.” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

The United Nations invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities during this International Day of Peace, Sept. 21.
