International Day of Peace

Very shortly it's time for the annual International Day of Peace, on 21 September. Will the deafening clamour of war drown out the voices of those calling for peace or even a mere cessation of fire for one day, as it usually does?

The International Day of Peace is a
UN endorsed (resolution 55/282) international initiative:

The International Day of Peace “is meant to be a day of global cease-fire.
I call on all countries and all people to stop all hostilities for the entire day. I also urge all people around the world to observe a minute of silence at 12 noon. Let us hold in our hearts the ideal of peace.”

-- Kofi Annan --
United Nations Secretary-General
21 September 2005

Let's give peace a chance, if only for one short day. We might actually enjoy it...

I believe it's a great day especially if one consider that some nations actually used this day to stop their long running war.

It's only going to be the 3rd year (i think)

In its present day form yes, third or so year. The original UN initiative goes back to the early eighties though.
