The International Day of Peace is a call for global ceasefire; a chance for all regions and nations to lay down weapons for a day. A chance to consider a world with limited violence, deep respect for individuals and communities, and reverence for ecological gifts.
A call for global ceasefire is a multi faceted approach to peace building. That single day can offer safe travel for individuals and families living in war zones. Barriers to adequate access to medicine and food can be eased on a day of intentional peace. Peace engages out deepest callings for justice. Contemplating peace can heighten our awareness and relational dynamics. Being peace asks the very highest of our potential.
The reports offered at http://economicsandpeace.org/reports/ via the Institute for Economics and Peace offer practical analysis and advice for peace building.
