A Day of Peace – September 21, 2012

Each year, on September 21, the International Day of Peace is observed around the world.  We live in a global community that must come today to seek ways in which to build a future that is sustainable.  May we find ways to bring peace in our lives and share it with others…

If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other. 
Mother Teresa

“We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves.” 
Dalai Lama

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.
