As this is my first post on this community I thought I'd make it a meaningful one. In the UK as I'm typing this it's 1.39am. I'm usually in bed by now, but I've been watching a documentary on television that had me so riveted I had to stay up and watch it in its entirity.
It was called Peace One Day and told the story of the United Nations Day Of Peace and the guy that has done so much to get it recognised.
I have to say at this point, to be perfectly honest I'd not heard of it until I watched this programme.
Here's a link to the BBC website and the page about it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcfour/documentaries/storyville/peace-one-day.shtml
I have put a post in my own journal about this that I have made public (most of my posts are friends only).
It would be fantastic if the other members of this community could link to this link and in turn urge their friends to also, and so on. This year's Day is this coming Wednesday, September 21st. The website also includes a link for initiatives for this year here.
I really do believe that this is so important that we need to do what we can to spread the word.
