PEACE | Sept. 21–Peace Day

  1. In 1981, the United Nations declared September 21 to be International Peace Day. It was first celebrated in 1982. It has become a day on which children are educated about the value of peace.
  2. This would be a good opportunity to get across the message that military actions are a last resort. It is instructive that members of the U.S. Armed Forces were not enthusiastic about a contemplated action against Syria in September 2013.
Wars can seem unavoidable. But they often take much longer than contemplated to bring to a resolution and they often solve nothing.
