25th International Day of Peace

September 21st, 2006

Did you know that today, September 21st, is designated an International Day of Peace by the United Nations? I just found out this morning! It is labeld as “a day of global ceasefire and non-violence, an invitation to all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day”. Wikipedia even says that “Observance of the International Day of Peace has not yet become widespread.”

There are a couple of events scheduled in California, and I hope to checkout the Night Light project in Santa Cruz tonight. I just found out that Mr. Cello Man will be playing tonight for the Marin IDP Celebration.
