International Peace Day

The International Day of Peace (“Peace Day”) is observed around the world each year on September 21st.  Established in 1981 by a unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to peace, above all differences, and to contribute to building a culture of peace.

As we observe conflicts and war around the world, there are some good signs at this time coming out of the Korean Peninsula, where the leaders of North and South Korea are visiting each other’s capitals, and talking about wanting both countries to co-host the Olympic games in the future.  Kim Jong-un wants, it appears, to have North Korea prosper economically.   The best way forward for that is a strong and lasting peace.
