Moment of silence at noon today for International Peace Day!



Happy International Day of Peace 
Today, Sunday, September 21, 2014

 The International Day of Peace, sometimes unofficially known as WorldPeace Day, is observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace





Each year Pacifica Peace People creates a peace banner which features a quote related to peace. This year's quote is from  Carlos Santana:  (link corrected - sorry)

"The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace."

Here are some ideas that you can do:

-Smile & say hi to a neighbor or a new face
-Do something to help create inner peace: a bubble bath, yoga, hike
-Create a peace garden
-Make a peace poster
-Hang a peace sign or poster in your window
-Volunteer in the community
-Renew or mend a former friendship
-Stand in a moment of silence at 12 noon on International Peace Day (Sept. 21st)
-Write a poem or song about peace
-Print out some peace quotes and post them around
-Visit someone who lives alone.
-Offer someone help or food
-Call an old friend or relative and ask how they are doing
-Learn about Compassionate Communication   (link corrected - sorry)
-Meditate or pray for peace
