21 Sept. - International Day of Peace

Did you know that September 21st is the International Day of Peace? Established by the United Nations in 2002, it aims to 'promote the ideals of peace both within and among all nations and peoples and give positive evidence of their commitment to peace in every way'.

Here is an interview with actor/director Jeremy Gilley, who has been campaigning for world peace with his documentary 'Peace One Day' (watch the trailer here). Celebrities like football player David Beckham and Hollywood star Jude Law have lent their names and faces to the cause. But it's also up to 'common' people like you and me to spread the word and give a real meaning to this date!
