International Day of Peace

I am…peaceful

How about that message for starting the week? Focus on being filled with peace and radiating peace to everyone you meet.

This week starts with today being International Day of Peace as established by the United Nations. One can go back to Sept 1982 to observe the first such day. This year’s theme is ” Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All”. The U.N. General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and people.

How can we help to raise the focus on peace in the world? We could demonstrate peace in our own life. I know that peace begins with my own thoughts. How about joining me in focusing on peace?

Namaste.
