THE INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE
Eleven Days of Peace
September 11 – 21, 2020
 

 
“The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly. Two decades later, in 2001, 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 honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.” (For more information: www.un.org)
 
The Interfaith Peace Project has been a friend of the United Nations International Day of Peace for twenty years. Once again, we prepare for the observance of Peace Day, September 21st, by observing these Eleven Days of peace.
 
Ever since the traumatizing events of September 11, 2001, the days between that sad day and September 21st have become sacred days for many throughout the World. This year we are offering eleven insights into peace gleaned from the great Spiritual Traditions of Humankind. We will send you a reflection each day with some suggestions as to how you might practice peace in all the affairs of your daily life.
 
The philosophy of Peace Day is simple enough. If we can practice peace for twenty-four hours, we can commit ourselves to the practice of peace each and every day of our lives.
 
Many will conduct programs, study groups, prayer services, and other observances on or around September 21st. We encourage you to participate in any program you can. Please remember, however, the celebration of September 21st is meant to remind us of what we need to do every day.
 
Every 21st of the month, we off you a reflection on peace. Feel free to share your insights with us. We would love to share your insights on our website. Send your reflections to:  [email protected].
