Wishing for Peace


Conflicted Areas, Fearful People and Twisted Minds.

Broken Homes, Deliberate Violence and Damaged Souls.

Blatant Hate, Belligerent Communities and Beleaguered Hope.

Wasted Humanity, Bloodied Hands and  Guilty Conscience.

Not anymore. Not again. Not ever.

Let’s hope, heal and help.

Feel free and fly.

Build bridges and bond

One last effort, can we not try?

World Peace Day: 21st September.

As the world assigns a day to collectively wish for peace, here are few people, initiatives and images for peace across the world. Let peace be desired by all, so that there is no need for war ever.

Initiatives:

Peace One Day: Their objective is to institutionalise Peace Day 21 September, making it a day that is self-sustaining, an annual day of global unity, a day of intercultural cooperation on a scale that humanity has never known.

Peace Direct: is an international charity dedicated to supporting local peacebuilding by seeking out  local peacebuilders who are making a real difference and then funding and promoting them.

Friends Without Borders: Recipient of UNESCO Power Of Peace Network Award, 2010, this campaign promotes friendship in the lives of youth around the world by working with Facebook and its mission is to “make the world more open and connected” by establishing cross-border friendship pair in conflict regions.

Peace crusaders and images of peace across the world.
