Relay Your Message for Peace Throughout the Year Without Saying a Word. 5 Ways to Celebrate International Day of Peace Today and Every Day
Did you know that today is International Day of Peace? Along with Christmas, Earth Day and my birthday, I count this day as one of my favorites. My day will be off to a perfect start when I drop off my youngest daughter at school. We have a caring and creative art teacher who helps the children create individually decorated pinwheels for peace and places them on the front lawn along with inspirational quotes.
There are hundreds of them and the imagery is moving to say the least. I carry the picture of not only those pinwheels for peace, but of the children that are behind their creation, with me throughout the year.
This year, as I was planning how to share this day with you, I was reminded of the excitement that my middle daughter has for wearing her commitment to not only one International Day of Peace, but for relaying her message of peace throughout the year. She has a tee that has a peace sign on it and it is one of her favorites. Without saying a word, she speaks volumes to all of those around her.
This year, in honor of my daughter, I wanted to give you 5 ways to speak volumes and spread your message of peace throughout the year without saying a word. Enjoy.
