International Day Of Peace

"Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.

This year, it has been clearer than ever that we are not each other’s enemies. Rather, our common enemy is a tireless virus that threatens our health, security and very way of life. COVID-19 has thrown our world into turmoil and forcibly reminded us that what happens in one part of the planet can impact people everywhere.

In March, UN Secretary-General António Guterres called on all warring parties to lay down their weapons and focus on the battle against this unprecedented global pandemic. While the message is intended for armed parties, solidarity and cooperation across borders, sectors and generations are also needed to win this new fight against the worst public health crisis of our time."

Let us all do what we can to make our world less violent and more peaceful.

1. Smile more, even when wearing your mask.  Your eyes will show the smile!

2. If you see a post that you doesn't match your opinion...scroll past it.

3. Sincerely try to walk in another's shoes; we cannot know what trials they are going through just by looking.

4. Reach out to those that you haven't communicated with recently.

4. Discontinue use of Round Up, which poisons not only the weeds, but damages insect life, birds, and our water systems.

Peace and love to you all!



  1. Really great ideas to help us all move towards a more peaceful planet. Happy Blogoversary tomorrow!

  2. All great ideas. I'm sick of all the fighting too. There are so many things to be thankful for. We just need to take the time to see them. They we can smile.

    Have a fabulous day and week. ♥

  4. Too bad nobody in the U.S. Congress got the memo, they're still celebrating the National Days of Idiocy!

  5. Excellent suggestions. The eyes definitely show a smile. And so does the voice convey it! I learned that from answering phone calls at various jobs. Peace and best wishes to you and yours.

  6. I love #2. Many people seem to have forgotten that they are not obligated to comment or reply to everything the read on the internet. But I must say, the anipal community seems to be one of the best in terms of kindness.

  7. I love the discontinue round up information. It truly is awful stuff

  8. Happy National Day of Peace! Good steps!

  9. Very well said. Happy National Day of Peace to you.
