The International Day of Peace

Sometimes Saintly Nick's Friday Graphic Funnies is the preceding post



Today is The International Day of Peace. Ir 
Each year on September 21, the United Nations invites all nations and people to honor a cessation of hostilities and commemorate the the International Day of Peace through education and public awareness on issues related to peace. In the quest for peace, the Universal Peace Federation and its Ambassadors for Peace around the world organize commemorations of the International Day of Peace each year. The theme for 2012 is:
Sustainable Peace for a Sustainable Future



The Peace Bell at the UN Headquarters is rung today:

The Japanese Peace Bell is a United Nations peace symbol. It was presented to the United Nations in June 1954 by the United Nations Association of Japan, at a time when Japan had not yet been officially admitted to the United Nations.
Weighing 116 kg, with a height of 1 meter, and 0.6 meter in diameter at the base, the metal in the bell itself was obtained from coins collected by children from the delegates of 60 nations who were attending the 13th General Conference of United Nations Associations held in Paris, France in 1951.




Events today and in the future include:





Peace be with you.
