Happy Birthday, International Peace Day!

Created by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the General Assembly opening, the first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982.

September 21 was officially declared the permanent date for the International Day of Peace in 2002. It is observed by many nations & military groups. It is observed with actions of peace. A temporary ceasefire may occur in a combat zone if this is observed.

This is a beautiful video which depicts peace. Lyrics to the song follow below.



Peace Today
by Faith Rivera

Peace is the promise I make today
There's nothing greater for me to say
Than to lay down my fears
Lay down unhappiness
And surrender to
The peace I choose today

Peace is the gift that I give today
No easy shortcut, Peace is the way
I will lay down my pride
Lay down self-righteousness
And surrender to
The peace I choose today

My all, I give My love for all

Peace is the reason we're here today
No accident, we've been by name
Called to lay down our lives
Stand up for greater good
And surrender to the peace we choose today

Peace, we choose - today
Peace, we bring - today
Peace, we live oh-today
