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.

At the end of the day …. War, what is it good for?


Peace

~~July 17, 2014~~

War is an organized and often prolonged conflict that is carried out by states or non-state actors. It is generally characterized by extreme violence, social disruption and economic destruction. War should be understood as an actual, intentional and widespread armed conflict between political communities, and therefore is defined as a form of political violence or intervention. The set of techniques used by a group to carry out war is known as warfare. An absence of war is usually called peace.

While some scholars see warfare as an inescapable and integral aspect of human nature, others argue that it is only inevitable under certain socio-cultural or ecological circumstances. For some the practice of war is not linked to any single type of political organization or society.

Rather, as discussed by John Keegan in his A History of Warfare, war is a universal phenomenon whose form and scope is defined by the society that wages it. Another argument suggests that since there are human societies in which warfare does not exist, humans may not be naturally disposed for warfare, which emerges under particular circumstances.

~~WAR WHAT IS IT GOOD FOR?~~

War, huh yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, oh hoh, oh
War huh yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, say it again y’all
War, huh good God
What is it good for?
Absolutely nothing, listen to me
John

Peace is an occurrence of harmony characterized by lack of violence, conflict behaviors and the freedom from fear of violence. Commonly understood as the absence of hostility and retribution, peace also suggests sincere attempts at reconciliation, the existence of healthy or newly healed interpersonal or international relationships, prosperity in matters of social or economic welfare, the establishment of equality, and a working political order that serves the true interests of all.Peace2

Give Peace a Chance with Lyrics

Give Peace a Chance by John Lennon

Imagine

Imagine …. Almost everywhere we look in the world, there’s a state of turmoil. Abuse, oppression, inequality, disregard for basic human rights, persecution, segregation. There is the permeating thought that we have to defend what is ours against enemies, foreign and domestic. We have forgotten the golden rule: do onto others

We fight for land, for resources, for oil, for profit, for religion. We are stubborn. We are right. There is no other way but ours. There’s no giving an inch, no compromise.

Just imagine if it were different … 

 Imagine2

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today …

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world …

Imagine – Playing For Change

~~Uploaded on Jan 6, 2011~~

In the beginning of 2010 the Playing For Change crew began work on a new Song Around the World, John Lennon’s “Imagine.” It has been an amazing year of production, taking the crew from the favelas of Brazil to the shrines of southern India, from villages in Nepal to the glittering urban landscape of Tokyo and New York, and beyond.

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.
