World Peace Day, 21 September

Today, September 21st, is Peace Day, founded by Jeremy Gilley in 2001. It is a day of ceasefire and nonviolence for all countries in the UN. Programs are able to enter otherwise unreachable areas of the world, such as parts of Afghanistan and Africa, to vaccinate children.

But what does everyone else think? Do you think it is possible for there ever to be world peace? Or is it human nature to be violent?

Thanks for sharing this, Aimee.

I'm of the opinion that the answer doesn't like in political systems - although it certainly helps if a country is not ruled by a despot. I think the answer is in improving human beings. If humans become more evolved, there will be less of a drive to violence. Thus, my devotion to my work - where I try to help people heal.

That's a very short answer to a complicated topic. :)

I agree with you completely. And thank you for answering. I see that only one person responded and only about 7 people so far have even looked at this, and I think this a topic that everyone should be at least a little concerned about. And it is kind of a heavy topic to post here, in the procrastination section especially, where people go to have fun and procrastinate. :) It's not up to the politicians to decide when the world should have peace; it's up to the people.

I'm glad you posted this - it's an important topic, Aimee!

World Peace Day, September 21st, comes two days after International Talk Like A Pirate Day, September 19th. I think we should make the day in between, September 20th, World War Day. And I'll nuke anybody who objects.
