The International Day of Peace
I am happy to be sharing this Auspicious day with all of you!
The 2020 theme for the International Day of Peace is,
“Shaping Peace Together”
Each year, The International day of peace is observed around the world on the 21 of September. The UN (united nations) General Assembly has declared this as a day- Devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing- 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.
This year has been clearer than ever that we are not each other’s enemies. Rather, our common enemy is a tireless virus that threatens our health, security and every way of life. Covid-19 has thrown our world into turmoil and forcibly reminded us, that what happens in one part of the planet can impact people everywhere!
In March, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres called on all warring parties to lay down their weapons and focus on the battle against this unprecedented global pandemic. While the message is intended for armed parties, solidarity and cooperation across borders, sectors and generations are also needed to win this new fight against the worst public health crisis of our time.
To mark its 75th anniversary, the UN has invited millions of people worldwide to join UN75, the largest and furthest-reaching global conversation on building the peaceful and prosperous future that we want.
As we struggle to defeat COVID-19, our voice is more important than ever. In these difficult times of physical distancing, this International Day of Peace will be dedicated to fostering dialogue and collecting ideas. The world will be invited to unite and share thoughts on how to weather this storm, heal our planet and change it for the better.
Even though we may not be able to stand next to each other, We can still dream together!
