#5: Peace Week Practice – Next Steps?

By: David J. Smith, September 22, 2017

The International Day of Peace was yesterday.  Hopefully it was a meaningful day for you.  Now going forward, what are your next steps?  Do you have plans for a continual strategy? Taking a class? Volunteering? Staying up to date on world events? Work to bridge divides in the U.S.? Peace is not just about one day or one week.  It is a constant everyday effort. Make a commitment, a plan, create a habit for peace in your personal and professional lives.  It is a daily effort and requires daily dedication.

Ask yourself at the end of the day: What did I do for peace today?
