Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21. The UN General Assembly has declared this a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace through observing 24 hours
of non-violence and cease-fire. To commemorate this special day, individuals, organizations, communities and nations are invited to participate in a Minute of Silence at noon in each time zone to create a “Peace Wave” around the world. You are invited to join in observing this minute for peace.
