World Peace Day September 21, 2019 – Peace Shall Reign

World Peace Day …

World Peace
Let there be World Peace …

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.

I am an author on TCE and write mainly in poetry and short stories. I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am currently an author on HubPages. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    A very thought provoking piece Phyllis – if world peace could be achieved – what a wonderous thing that would be. I seem to look at the more realistic side of this. Man has always been it own worse predator and I see no end to that. The best that the human race can hope for is that good men and women step forward to overcome tyranny and the evil that some of mankind do.

      Thank you, Kurt, for reading and contributing to my thoughts on World Peace. You bring up some very good points. Man has always fought for more of what they want, be it riches, territory, religion, or power – it seems to be human nature. I guess the peace I pray for is far beyond earthly existence. Thanks again – I appreciate it.
