Today is The International Day of Peace
It's a long held belief that cats and dogs are natural enemies. And yet, as many pet owners can tell you, it IS possible to be peaceable. In many households across the land, canines and felines have formed countless truces and have even forged loving and enduring friendships.
The International Day of Peace was established by the UN General Assembly in 1981 for 'commemorating and strengthening the ideals of peace within and among all nations and people.' Twenty years later, the General Assembly decided that 21 September would be observed annually as a 'day of global ceasefire and non-violence' and invited all Member States, organizations and individuals to commemorate the day, including through education and public awareness, and to cooperate with the United Nations in the establishment of a global ceasefire.
What will you do today to bring peace into our world?
