I recently watched a TED talk by Jeremy Gilley and was quite inspired by his idea for bringing about world peace in a very practical way. I watched the short documentaries about Jeremy’s journey and they show how instead of feeling hopeless about trying to get one country or group at a time to be permanently peaceful,he has started Peace One Day. I think it is an amazing idea to get everyone focussing on peace for a day which is very easy to imagine. It isn’t abstract or difficult to understand.
Like any worthwhile cause,it seems to be a lifelong struggle,but it doesn’t end with one day. I think it will succeed as a widely recognized event and with so many people thinking about how to make peace every year it will grow into even more.
I hope you have a great peace day and to celebrate,why not share the news about Peace Day 2012 –A Day of Global Truce with those you know.
