International Day of Peace - 21 September 2014
By Megi Benia, Georgia
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
The theme of this year’s International Day of Peace is the “Right of Peoples to Peace”.
Wonderful theme indeed, but how?
Considering current situation, how can we say to people, make them believe, that they have right to peace? Today, in absolutely chaotic conditions, when almost each part of our beautiful world is involved in military campaigns, when every day thousands of people die by gun, how to keep trust in peace in ordinary citizen, who wakes up every day with thoughts how to stay alive and to save their children?
These questions are really complicated and the worst side is that we do not have the proper and clear answers on them. But we definitely know the fact that we all have RIGHT TO PEACE and we should fight for it as we fight for the right to live. I think these two rights are very close and sometimes are the same.
All of us should encourage each other, that we have right to peace and we should fight for it through all possible peaceful ways, because we have to use PEACE FOR PEACE instead of war for peace. This is the most important one, because I believe that
“If we are to reach real peace in this world and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with children; and if they will grow up in their natural innocence, we won’t have to struggle, we won’t have to pass fruitless idle resolutions. But we shall go from love to love and peace to peace, until at last all the corners of the world are covered with that peace and love for which, consciously or unconsciously, the whole world is hungering.”
