International Day of Peace – 21 September

Pray for world peace

September 21st is a day of peace, a day in which the whole world needs get together and should start thinking about how to overcome the inequalities that divide us all. The theme for 2016 is, very fittingly, “The Sustainable Development Goals: Building Blocks for Peace.”

Our planet is our common home; the ones that own the most should help their brothers reach dignity and equality. We should make sure that no-one is left behind while working towards these goals, and take the hand of the weaker ones while we shine a light towards our future together.

The 17 goals that are shared by the 193 Members of the United Nations are solid building blocks for this peaceful future together. Diminishing hunger, poverty, social inequality is what will lead us to building stronger relationships. We are at the dawn of an era where technology and communication finally makes international cooperation possible, and everyone needs to give their contribution. Even you!

Today is International Peace Day. But to make it truly meaningful we should make each day a day peace.

“Let us all work together to help all human beings achieve dignity and equality; to build a greener planet; and to make sure no one is left behind.” — UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon
