World Peace Day 21st September 2011

Warmest greetings to all of our EasyBid members!

Today is a joyous event which is worth to be celebrated with everyone in this planet! It is World Peace Day! This event is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political among nations.

They uses Dove as their symbolic icon. The peace dove flying with an olive branch in its beak is one of the most commonly featured symbols for the day. In Judaism, Christianity, and Islam a white dove is generally a sign for peace. The dove can also represent “hope for peace” or a peace-offering from one person to another, hence the phrase “to extend an olive branch”. Often, the dove is represented as still in flight to remind people of its role as messenger not to fight but stay in peace as nation.

Conflict is a necessary part of daily life, and we all have to deal with it. The skill lies in HOW we deal with it. Tools for Peace contains the ‘tried and trusted’ methods used by wise, experienced people all over the world to transform the conflicts they face into opportunities. These tools work just as effectively in our families and communities as they do in situations of extreme violence and civil war. They also work within ourselves, which is where peace begins.

We believe that peace starts with the individual. The mission of World Peace  is to inspire and empower people around the world to be more at peace with themselves, others and the environment. Give everyone a chance to absence from war, such as might be occasioned by a temporary ceasefire in a combat zone.

Even Dalai Lama agrees with us, as he also mentioned:

“What I like most about the World Peace Festival is that it’s creating a community that inspires and empowers millions of people around the world to take an active stand for peace.”

In conjunction with this special event of the day, EasyBid would like to wish everyone a joyous and harmony World Peace Day! Let the DOVE of peace spread our peace and harmony around our planet.
