"Peace is every step," writes Thich Nhat Hanh. So the question: What step to take?
The United Nations' International Day of Peace is supposed to be a global holiday, a chance to highlight efforts to end conflict and promote peace. Established by a U.N. resolution in 1982, "Peace Day" has grown to include millions of people around the world who participate in all kinds of events, large and small.
On Sept. 21, people all over the world will stop what they are doing at high noon and pray for peace for one minute in acknowledgement of the United Nations International Day of Peace. The UN's goal is get 1 million people to sign the pledge to pray for peace.
