“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.” Mahatma Gandhi.
Today, 21st September, is The International Day of Peace.
Today is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the hope of ending war and violence, even if only a temporary ceasefire in combat zones to allow for humanitarian aid access.
To inaugurate the day, the United Nations Peace Bell is rung at UN Headquarters, New York.
The bell is cast from coins donated by children from all continents except Africa, who have no money to give; the inscription on its side reads, “Long live absolute world peace” – wouldn’t that be a wonderful thing, in a world that has never been more terrifying.
So my question is,….What are you doing tonight, Wednesday 21st September?
Are you in the Leeds area to help First Direct Arena by showing your support?
Our friend Sue has organised a choir for World Peace Day to perform outside the Arena at 9:30pm, to sing one song – Imagine by John Lennon.
That’s all it needs. People getting together in peace, for peace.
Sharing the love and saying we don’t want to fight.
If you can’t be there tonight, please join me in the hope that one day, someday, we will all stop the hate and even for just one day enjoy peace in this world.
