Global Truce 2012 September 21

Each year, September 21 marks Peace Day — a day for wide-scale community action, and a day for United Nations agencies and aid organizations to safely carry out life-saving work. By 2007, 100 million people were active on Peace Day. On Peace Day 2008, the U.N. Department for Safety and Security recorded a 70% reduction in violent incidents in Afghanistan.

For Peace Day 2012, there is an initiative to have all sectors of society observe a day of Global Truce.

…individuals in every country, at home, in schools, in the workplace, in our local communities, and those engaged in armed conflict on the international stage. Everyone has a role to play.

You can join the campaign via www.peaceoneday.org. There are numerous social media activities (Facebook | Twitter)and even a free Peace One Day App.

Watch the inspiring Ted Talk from Jeremy Gilley, the actor, filmmaker, peac activist and founder of the non-profit organization Peace One Day.
