The International Day of Peace is observed annually on September 21. First celebrated in 1982, this day is dedicated to world peace and specifically the absence of war and violence.
In 1984, the Minute of Silence at 12:00 noon in each time zone was inaugurated in commemoration of the annual Day of Peace. Join us THIS FRIDAY, Sept 21 and be part of a “Peace Wave” of silence around the world. For more information and additional activity suggestions, check out this website.
