Happy International Day of Peace

"I call on all warring parties to lay down their weapons and observe a global ceasefire. To them I say: stop the killings and the destruction, and create space for lasting peace." 

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

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, both within and among all nations and peoples.

The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All” which aims to highlight the importance of all segments of society to work together to strive for peace.

I hope you find a few moments of peace today and share some peace with those around you. 

Here in London, I'll listening to the Dalai Lama's talk in central London on creating a #HappierWorld with Action for Happiness. I'll share his wisdom with you in future posts. 

I shall then be joining thousands of others in Trafalgar Square for 30 minutes of peace starting at 6.30pm. See you there, either physically or in spirit. :-)

Wishing you peace of mind and heart.
