International Peace Day

Today is the day.
It is International Peace Day.
It is the day when people from all over the world pray for peace.

Rhonda Roo is having a Peace Party.
Please join us on the peace train!

Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will live as one.
~John Lennon




We shall find peace. We shall hear angels. We shall see the sky sparkling with diamonds.
~ Anton Chekov




Either war is obsolete or men are.
~R. Buckminster Fuller




I believe that to meet the challenges of our times, human beings will have to develop a greater sense of universal responsibility. Each of us must learn to work not just for oneself, one's own family or nation, but for the benefit of all humankind. Universal responsibility is the key to human survival. It is the best foundation for world peace.
~H.H. the Dalai Lama


Peace To You!

Beautiful spirit and thoughts of peace Snap. I wish for you a peaceful day, peaceful thoughts as we join our hands together to pray that peace will lead the way.

Beautiful post with beautiful quotes. I especially like the one by Buckminster Fuller.

Peace to you today and all days.

What profound quotes in light of the current world status. The Dalai Lama hit the nail on the head with the responsibility is for everyone not just a few. Happy Peace Day to you, Snap!

Perfect peace photos you chose. I, too, am a dreamer. And you remembered right - I did post a photo of my Lisa Leonard necklace!

Hi Snap,
Your post is beautiful. Especially agree with the Dali Lama's quote, about Universal responsibility!
I will march for peace, by your side!

I think every day should be peace day - the only reason people still get bombs dropped on them is that the rest of us accept it.
