World Peace Day …
Today is International Day of Peace or, as it is often referred to, World Peace Day. Whichever way it is said, the message is loud and clear. “Ceasefire and let there be peace for at least this one day.” This is a United Nations-sanctioned holiday observed annually on 21 September. It is dedicated to world peace, and specifically the absence of war and violence.
When the United Nations Peace Bell is rung at the UN Headquarters in New York City, I pray every person in the world hears it, (including the far-left Democrats and the main-stream media with their choice to spread hate and promote violence and killing). The human cost of war is devastating and it must be stopped. How can this be done? By one soul at a time, one person standing up and holding out a hand in peace to another person. If each person can reach out with love and light a candle for peace and that candle lights another in continuous lighting, passing on the flame, keep it burning till all souls in the world want and will work for peace, not just for one day, but to see that peace shall reign forever. Are my thoughts a crazy fantasy? I think not.
If humans can hate and kill, there is the opposite who can love and bring about peace. We are all one in the eyes of the Creator and it is time to rise above the evil and terror, to reach out and educate on the glory of peace and the betterment of life.
Today is World Peace Day. May Peace reign forever. My candle is lit and in my window – I pass the flame on to you. My hand is out to hold another and to pray for world Peace – take my hand and reach out for another.
