Hello UN Spirtual Workers,

I am inspired to help the global comminity focus on
the UN's resolution for an International Day of Peace on Sept 21, 2002..(full moon equinox season) See the General Assembly's resoltion below on this sacred intention.

Is one day of peace possible? Yes, I beleive so. Let's link the world in prayer, meditation, cease fire etc. on that day?

Want to help spread the word? We can collaborate on a strategy. Here is my eamil

Excerpt from
United Nations A/RES/55/282
General Assembly
28 September 2001
Fifty-fifth session
Agenda item 33
00 57607
Resolution adopted by the General Assembly

Reaffirming the contribution that the observance and celebration of the
International Day of Peace makes in strengthening the ideals of peace and
alleviating tensions and causes of conflict,
Considering the unique opportunity it offers for a cessation of violence and
conflict throughout the world, and the related importance of achieving the broadest
possible awareness and observance of the International Day of Peace among the
global community,

Desiring to draw attention to the objectives of the International Day of Peace,
and therefore to fix a date for its observance each year that is separate from the
opening day of the regular sessions of the General Assembly,

1. Decides that, with effect from the fifty-seventh session of the General
Assembly, the International Day of Peace shall be observed on 21 September each
year, with this date to be brought to the attention of all people for the celebration
and observance of peace;

2. Declares that the International Day of Peace shall henceforth be observed
as a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people
to honour a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the Day;
3. Invites all Member States, organizations of the United Nations system,
regional and non-governmental organizations and individuals to commemorate, in
an appropriate manner, the International Day of Peace, including through education
and public awareness, and to cooperate with the United Nations in the establishment
of the global ceasefire.
111th plenary meeting
