is more than the absence of war. It is a state of being in balance
and harmony. Peace is about how we handle problems and how we
get along with others. Peace is about community--about encouraging
and helping each other to live better, more fulfilling lives.
Most of all, peace is about respect -- respect for ourselves,
each other, and the planet we share. Peace is an ongoing process
that requires our constant attention, but we begin to make our
lives more peaceful the moment we decide to try to be peacemakers.
When we convince the world to make working for a more peaceful,
just and sustainable world our priority, we will create a culture
of peace, and living peacefully will become the most natural
way to live.
The International Day of Peace, also known as Peace Day,
is a celebration of our shared wish for a better world. It is
an opportunity to look at the things that have been done over
the year to help create a more peaceful, just and sustainable
world, and to note the things that still need to be done. It's
a time to rededicate our commitment to a more peaceful planet.
Peace Day is also an opportunity to spread hope for our wish
to live in a world without war. All of the nations of the
world agreed to the United Nations' call to create a global
ceasefire on Peace Day. You can help create humanity's first
day of peace. If we can live in peace for one day, we can learn
to work together to create a peaceful world, one day at a time.
