What is World Peace Day?

The International Day of Peace, also known as the World Peace Day, occurs annually on September 21.

The UN invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace. The first year this holiday was celebrated was 1981.

To inaugurate the day, the “Peace Bell” is rung at UN Headquarters (in New York City, United States). The bell is cast from coins donated by children from all continents. It was given as a gift by the United Nations Association of Japan, and is referred to as “a reminder of the human cost of war.” The inscription on its side reads: “Long live absolute world peace

Prajnya through its Education Peace Initiative tries to create an inclusive space where the habit of peace is nurtured and cultivated through learning, play, introspective engagement and interaction. Children are born with an innate sense of acceptance, inclusion and cooperation. It is important to realize that it is possible to resolve conflicts amicably and it is possible to create a peaceful and cooperative environment.

We at Words and More are pleased to partner with Prajnya’s Peace Initiative to launch  the ‘Writing for Peace’ Program. We invite stories, poems and articles from children all over the world on the theme of “Peace”. Each month, one entry will be selected and showcased on both the Words and More site and on the Prajnya Education for Peace site.

So Get writing! As usual, send your pieces to wordsnmore@gmail.com to enter this worldwide initiative to spread peace and harmony in the world.

We begin our partnership today with the poem ‘A World Without Boundaries’ by 10 year-old Natasha Singh from New Delhi. Congratulations Natasha!

    World peace… such a simple thing to achieve. What is standing in our way? The so called, “nature” of man kind. jelousy of religion and land, and all differences. As simple as the color of your skin. It’s wrong, cruel, tramatizing, but we all find it imposible to look over. We only have to think… share. Thats the word to save this world. Express, love, sacrafice, they all are. we must share our religion, land, money, and love. We must express our feelings and creativity, along with loving each step of the way. sacrafice for others, as they feel your blessing, they will sacrafice for you. such silly things come to the biggest wars. Disputes and arguments over something you can share, you can love, you can appriciate, without fighting such a bloody war. And each generation is falling deep into the fait of what good that last bullet will do them. They all think to take it and run. Why dont God teach them their wrong ways? Why not bound them in chains of love to never escape eachother? JUST SHOW THEM ALL WHAT THEIR DOING WRONG? All they want is to be on top, but you know what I say, only the best people dont. They are so blinded by their mistakes, that if this country decides to live in world peace, there will be war over that too. The complications of man make it so hard to reach this goal. If only we could take this situation into hands without geting destroyed by other countries. And do you know why they would do this? Basically, Just to say that they defeated us. They can all live happily without our land, money, and everything else. I do not say this is nature of man kind, I say it’s will.
