thursdays child: peace

jeremy gilley spreading peace

in 1999, preoccupied with questions about the fundamental nature of humanity and the most pressing issues of our time, filmmaker jeremy gilley launched peace one day and set out to find a starting point for peace. he had a mission: to document his efforts to establish the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence with a fixed calendar date.

remarkably, two years later, he achieved his primary objective when the 192 member states of the united nations unanimously adopted 21 september as an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the un international day of peace.

that day is now called peace day http://www.peaceoneday.org/en/welcome

stop throwing stones.....and words
just be nicer

one person really can make a difference
