Together for Peace: Respect, Safety & Dignity for All!
Wednesday, September 20th, 2017
In 2001, the United Nations General Assembly designated September 21st as the International Day of Peace, devoted to strengthening the ideals for peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. The day was also established as an annual day of non-violence and cease-fire.
In unity with the United Nations 2017 theme and events of celebration, education and story-telling, Karen and Shirley Lynn invite you to join this global movement of ‘together for peace’. We will be exploring the question Who will you make peace with on this day?
We are learning that Mother Earth is us and that we are Mother Earth. We also are learning that our neighbour is us just as we are the neighbour. And now we need to learn that we are the refugee and the migrant just as the migrant and the refugee is us.
If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten we belong to each other. – Mother Theresa
Through the practice of sitting in circle and listening to each other’s stories of peace done well, as well as sorrow for when we have fallen short of this ideal, we will be strengthening the ideals of peace in our world. Come, let us stand for respect, safety and dignity for all. Peace is not a distant goal. Peace is the way.
Come and be part of making peace our lived reality – because you are possessed of a beauty and a light and a value that are the Earth’s richest treasure. You hold a link between your peace and the peace of the world, between your vision of a peaceful world and the global vision of a peaceful world.
We hope you will join us!
