The International Day of Peace is celebrated every year on September 21. This day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1981 to promote peace and non-violence throughout the world. The theme of this day is "Building peace together".
The day is also marked by a minute of silence at noon local time, where people around the world pause for a minute to reflect on the importance of peace.
The International Day of Peace reminds us that peace is not only the absence of war, but also a state of harmony, justice and equality. It calls us to work towards creating a world where everyone can live in peace and dignity.
