Celebration of International Day of Peace with Shubhada Dantale

Monday, September 21, 2020

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on September 21. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire. This year, it has been clearer than ever that we are not each other’s enemies. Rather, our common enemy is a tireless virus that threatens our health, security and very way of life. COVID-19 has thrown the world into turmoil and forcibly reminded us that what happens in one part of the planet can impact people everywhere. Fittingly, the theme for 2020 is “Shaping Peace Together.” Celebrate the day by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the pandemic. Stand together with the UN against attempts to use the virus to promote discrimination or hatred. Even though we may not be able to stand next to each other, we can still dream together.
