Successful Relationships Reading Corner
This week, we wrote about how acceptance creates peace within your relationships. Here are three sites that promote peace individually and in the world.
United Nations International Day of Peace “Each year the International Day of Peace (IDP) is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. Never has our world needed peace more. This year’s theme is Actions for Peace: Our Ambition for the #GlobalGoals. It is a call to action that recognizes our individual and collective responsibility to foster peace. Fostering peace contributes to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals will create a culture of peace for all.”
I DECLARE WORLD PEACE The Project “We started the I Declare World Peace project in 2010, to install the phrase “I Declare World Peace” into human consciousness, intending to contribute to an increase in #GlobalPeaceConsciousness. Participation in the I Declare World Peace project is simple, free and at will. It requires no registration or “membership”. We do not accept donations, and we do not create or sell mailing lists.”
Peace Pilgrim “From 1953 until 1981, a silver haired woman calling herself only “Peace Pilgrim” walked more than 25,000 miles on a personal pilgrimage for peace. Wearing a blue tunic and carrying just a few worldly possessions in her pockets, she shared her simple but profound message in thousands of communities throughout the U.S.: ‘when enough of us find inner peace, our institutions will become peaceful and there will be no more occasion for war.'”
