About Peace 365
A Bit Of History
On the 19th of September 2005 we watched a program on Channel 4 titled 'Peace One Day'. Afterwards while discussing the program with friends we had a good healthy laughter,
'Good for them, one day of peace but what is wrong with the remaining 365 days', one asked?
Since then we have committed ourselves to spread the invitation of the General Assembly Resolution 55/282 of the International Day of Peace all over the world, where in paragraph 3 of the Resolution we read:
"Invites all Member States, organizations of the United Nations system, regional and non-governmental organisations and individuals", like ourselves, "to commemorate, in an appropriate manner, the International Day of Peace, including through education and public awareness, and to cooperate with the United Nations in the establishment of the global ceasefire."
and intend to propose, with the united single voice and active supporters involved in the process, to extend the aforementioned Resolution for the additional 365 days.
The Next Step
Since the very beginning of history of mankind the word peace has had been on the lips of many but what is needed is action. Effective and constructive action from everyone.
Friends and associates keep asking me to write a book about it so let us share the responsibility of it and write this book together. Anyway, according to my personal observation the book has had been already written but only few can read it and understand its meanings.
Not so long time ago the Cold War was sill a threat between so many nations. Look at us today, now. The threat of war does not exist any more but there is another much more vicious one, scarcity.
In the film 'Peace One Day' Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations used the end of the Cold War as an example for when he said "I have seen so many miracles in my life that I believe in miracles and dreams. Someone, somewhere has to come up with the first dream".
I have a dream and I am not the only one...robertmuller.org
As already mentioned, there is one International Day of Peace - so what is wrong with the rest of the days? The time has come to take the next step. The next step is to establish peace for the rest of those days. And that is the reality. We have to take the next step.
There is a lot of pressure on education. Education is not only the process of erecting more schools and employing more teachers, education is about what and how are we going to teach ourselves and our children.
Firstly it has to be established what the word peace is all about, its meaning and respect for, by re-educating post-war society on how to implement this first Principle of existence, the right to live and share, in the minds of all present and future generations.
A Waste Of Energy
There is an industry of wasted energy dedicated to war. This energy can be re-distributed through the means of global disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration to unity between all nations by redirecting it towards dialogue based processes in mutual education and campaigning the awareness of the establishment of the civil society here on our Mother Earth Planet.
Jeremy Gilley and Peace One Day
Great honour and many thanks have to be given to Jeremy Gilley, founder and director of the Peace One Day organisation who along with his family members, friends and associates for their time and effort that have secured one calendar day the 21st of September annually recognised as the International Day of Peace sealed by the signatories of the 192 Nations in the Resolution 55/282 Adopted by the General Assembly .
I have said that that he is the only one who started rolled the first snowball of peace causing this ever growing avalanche of.
As Kofi Annan expressed in the film 'Peace One Day', "Individuals can make a difference and if each of us did our bit, collectively we will make a major contribution".
