With all that is going in the world, this day is very poignant.
The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peaceful collaboration, both within and among all nations and peoples – www.peaceday2020.com
An extract from Maya Angelou‘s – The Rock Cries Out to Us Today in commemoration of World Peace Day 21st September.
Each of you a bordered country,
Delicate and strangely made proud,
Yet thrusting perpetually under siege.
Your armed struggles for profit
Have left collars of waste upon
My shore, currents of debris upon my breast.
Yet, today I call you to my riverside,
If you will study war no more.
Come, clad in peace and I will sing the songs
The Creator gave to me when I
And the tree and stone were one.
