Students are encouraged to reflect on “building not only geographical but spiritual bridges between people, and strengthen the intellectual, cultural and communication linkages between our societies” as promoted by the International Day of Peace.
The first International Day of Peace was celebrated in September 1982; since then many organizations have been formed to be a loud voice for peace and cease-fires worldwide. Celebrating peace can be as simple as lighting a candle and meditating, or as complex as organizing a concert for thousands. Please take a moment this week to promote peace and appreciate our wonderful nation.
