After Lisa at Zeebra Designs & Destinations wrote a post on August 9 2012, about the parade she saw in Ecuador, where hundreds and hundreds of citizens dressed in white walked quietly down the streets “to bring awareness for peace” a few of us decided to wear white on International Peace Day.
We’d love you to join us by wearing white on Friday.
In 1982 the General Assembly of the United Nations declared that September 21 to be the International Day of Peace,
a day to reflect on the unconscionable toll — moral, physical, material — wrought by war.
Did you know that the root causes of many conflicts are directly related to, or fueled by, valuable natural resources, such as diamonds, gold, oil, timber or water?
World leaders will be meeting in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for this year’s observance of the International day of Peace to discuss this year’s theme i.e. “Sustainable Peace for a Sustainable Future”
Remember all you have to do to show your solidarity is to wear white on Friday.
There will be events such as Interfaith peace ceremonies, peace walks, picnics and tree plantings. Check your local listings.
