Year's is the perfect opportunity for those of us who wish for
peace on earth to make a resolution to try to do our best to work
to create a better world during the coming year. It's also the
perfect occasion to hold an event that will spread hope for our
shared wish of a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. People
will be celebrating anyway, and making resolutions about things
they want to change about themselves in the coming year. Why not
make it celebration with a purpose, and share a resolution that
will help unite our local, national and global communities!
is the very idea behind two January 1 events - One Day In Peace
and Global Family Day. A global campaign for One Day In
Peace on January 1, 2000 helped inspire a UN Resolution and a
joint United States Congressional Resolution, inviting January
1 to be celebrated every year as a day of peace and sharing. If
we can live for one day in peace, then we can work together to
make peace last, one day at a time.
day has also come to be known as Global Family Day - a
day for peace and sharing. Communities around the world come together
for a shared meal on January 1 and talk about how they can help
to create a better world. What can you do to help create humanity's
first day of peace, ever?
