To start the day …. “International Day of Peace”!!


~~September 21, 2014~~ 

The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as World Peace Day, is observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone for humanitarian aid access.

The day was first celebrated in 1982, and is kept by many nations, political groups, military groups, and peoples. In 2013, for the first time, the Day was dedicated by the Secretary-General of the United Nations to peace education, the key preventive means to reduce war significantly.

To inaugurate the day, the United Nations Peace Bell is rung at UN Headquarters (in New York City). The bell is cast from coins donated by children from all continents except Africa, and was a gift from the United Nations Association of Japan, as “a reminder of the human cost of war”; the inscription on its side reads, “Long live absolute world peace”.

~~Description~~

Every year on the International Day of Peace, hundreds of organizations worldwide join together to create one of the largest global prayers and meditations for peace in history!

BeThePeace welcomes people from every culture, every spiritual tradition, and every political perspective to come together in a profound experience of Global Oneness. What does it really mean to be the peace we wish to see?

The event builds on a thirty-year tradition of a Planetary Peace Wave on September 21 to build a global Culture of Peace. It aims to strengthen an ever-growing global network of ‘subtle activists’ committed to developing internal peace and creating a foundation for a global culture of peace.

Playing For Change is a movement created to inspire and connect the world through music. Join the movement here: http://www.playingforchange.com/membe….

This song is the Playing For Change Foundation’s gift to the world.

The Playing For Change Foundation feels honored to have the blessing and generous support of Yoko Ono as music lovers around the world join together to launch the Power to the People campaign. The campaign seeks to advance John Lennon’s vision of peace by engaging artists and audiences to contribute to music education programs worldwide. Proceeds raised will help build music schools, support teachers and music programs, purchase instruments, and connect schools for cross-cultural learning and conflict resolution across borders.

Music IS the power: Power to the People.
