Today I’m not going to kill anyone. It will be hard but it’s a good day to make this commitment. Please watch the video above. Conflict is inevitable. Fighting really is optional.

This week I saw an inspirational documentary about  Jeremy Gilley’s attempts to persuade the global community via the United Nations to sanction officially a day without conflict; a ceasefire day; a global day of Peace.

Peace One Day was founded in 1999 to document efforts to create an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence with a fixed calendar date. In 2001, POD achieved its primary objective. United Nations General Assembly resolution (A/Res/55/282) was unanimously adopted by UN member states, formally establishing an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the UN International Day of Peace, fixed in the global calendar on 21 September – Peace Day.  Today.

Last year on 21 September, 27.6 million people from 200 countries did something for Peace Day. You can make your own commitment for Peace Day and log it on this website.

Or just make peace. With the world. With someone you know. With yourself.
