a moment of peace - around the world for one minute

Remember Peace painting by Singleton of Florida, USA
I've taken the following information from a Face Book public event page titled "A Minute of Silence, A Moment of Peace" to share with you.

Individuals, organizations and countries are being asked to observe a Minute of Silence - Moment of Peace on Peace Day, Friday September 21 2012, at 12 noon local time. This simple yet profound and practical action demonstrates that personal and planetary Peace are one. 

 In 1983, in commemoration of the annual International Day of Peace and in solidarity with the United Nations, Pathways To Peace inaugurated a Minute of Silence of Peace at 12:00 Noon in each time zone that resulted in a Peace Wave around the world. This observation of a noon Minute of Silence - Moment of Peace has grown throughout the world, and has been celebrated on the International Day of Peace. The heart of International Day of Peace is the Minute of Silence - Moment of Peace, with the idea of a 24-hour Peace Wave at noon in each time zone. During Peace Day, all forms of media (both physical: TV, radio, short-wave radio, internet, and “meta” physical: prayer, meditation, silence, drums, etc.) are used to communicate a new message and to convey the thoughts, images, sounds and acts of Peace throughout the Peace Wave of 24 hours around the world. The International Day of Peace, and the Minute of Silence - Moment of Peace, is a shared and practical act of Peacebuilding in which all individuals, organizations and nations can participate.

This year Pathways To Peace through their new Culture of Peace Initiative website and platform, has created a unique tool to bring all these ceremonies as one: see: www.cultureofpeace.org

Please watch, share, and/or participate, wherever you are in the world.
