Thanks for stopping by! We hope you are feeling more peaceful and hopeful for a more peaceful society in the future.
Jeremy Gilley, the founder of Peace One Day, has recorded over 900 hours of young people’s thoughts on the idea of a starting point for peace. Through a window of a day, they would be able to get involved in the peace process through art, sport, and music … helping to move the efforts for a more peaceful society forward.
The year 2015 statistically showed this day becoming self-sustaining with an estimated 1.5 billion people now exposed to Peace Day messages with 709 million people now aware of Peace Day. Of those aware, an estimated 13 million people behaved more peacefully on that day.
Let’s move onto our local project for 2015. It was all about raising awareness for peace in the home. We featured kids and canines ….. child abuse and animal abuse are not very peaceful in our book. What about you?
Pictured above is our collage of our local littles and rescue pups. Just look in their eyes and see the pure love and the pure joy of ………. being. They make the world a better place so we should take better care of them. Don’t you agree??
Okay … back to the questions ….
Who will you make peace with?
What will you do for peace on Peace Day?
Today’s suggestion is to make it a movie night. Tune into YouTube and screen Jeremy Gilley’s film, “Day After Peace” which charts his journey creating Peace Day. Popcorn is optional but always more fun. We hear that you can still buy Jiffy Pop to add a “pop” to the evening! We know the littles might find it quite intriguing!
Have a peaceful 24 hours!
