International Day of Peace, September 21, 2017

By: David J. Smith, September 15, 2017

This coming Thursday, September 21, 2017 is the International Day of Peace.  Around the globe, peacebuilders will be gathering to further the work of peace.  Think about what things you could be doing on this day.   Everyday next week I will be posting about things we can do to advance peace in our lives.  So look for my posts.

As way of background, here is some information about the IDP.  The below video on changing the perceptions we have of refugees is well done.  Advancing refugee awareness is an important effort surrounding this year’s IDP.  Click here or below to watch the video
