Happy International Peace Day

Today is the United Nations designated International Day of Peace!

"Because if you can find it in yourself to do something for Peace Day, September 21st, no matter how big or small, then together we can create a day of global unity. And that unity will save lives."

Today is "an opportunity for individuals around the world - particularly young people - to become involved in the peace process."

"It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it." - Eleanor Roosevelt

"If we want them to observe it, then we the people are going to have to act and become involved. And if we become involved, they will follow. But they won't do it if we don't do it. The time is now."

"World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not the absence of violence. Peace is the manifestation of human compassion."
-Dalai Lama
