Happy Peace Day with Kunafeh and John Lennon’s “Imagine”

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…
– John Lenon

Do you know September 21, is observed as The International Day of Peace, a.k.a. “Peace Day”.  It is not a public holiday but is observed globally. The United Nation established this day to coincide the opening of the general assembly in 1981. The first Peace Day was celebrated in 1982. Until 2002, Peace day was observed on the third Tuesday of September. In 2002, September 21 became the permanent date for the International Day of Peace. Nations around the world are invited to observe this day of global ceasefire and non-violence – personal and political.

 

Anyone anywhere can celebrate this Day. Though various events and organized events take place on this day, it can also be observed as simply as with a toast for peace, lighting a candle, silent meditation, or just a picnic for peace. The impact of everyone, everywhere in the world coming together for peace is enormous. Let’s take this opportunity to attempt to make peace in our personal life and in our relationships, and in the conflicts we see around us. Can you imagine what a whole day would mean without anger, hostility and ceasefire.
