International Day of Peace - September 21st, Forever

Albert Kaufman

Peace
Happy International Day of Peace!

Seeing the movie Peace One Day moved me to tell my world about this day of peace. Jeremy Gilley, who made the film is a visionary and through his efforts had the U.N. move the International Day of Peace to today, which is also the equinox and I think the opening of the UN each year. It's supposed to reach governments and warring bodies so that they take a day off from fighting.

Here is a list of things that one can do to celebrate this day. I've posted the list on the outside of my cubicle and sent it to my e-mail list. Feel free to pass it on.

I would like to live in a peaceful world. I imagine living in a world where there are no guns, no fighting and people work less and sing and play more. "You may say I'm a dreamer, but I know I'm not the only one" - John Lennon

    Just don't try to "...petition the Government for a redress of grievances." It will get you arrested, as happen to the protesters at Sen. Smith's office today.
