Celebrate the International Day of Peace

The International Day of Peace, established in 1981 by United Nations General Assembly resolution 36/67, is observed each year on September 21st.  The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All” and the United Nations 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.”  UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also issued a statement calling “on all warring parties to lay down their weapons and observe a global ceasefire.”
