Peace One Day; The Making of World Peace Day

“ When you build a house, you start with one brick.”

Jeremy Gilley believed there should be a specific day dedicated to peace every year. He traveled the globe meeting with world leaders to get support for a World Peace Day. With help from the Dalai Lama and Kofi Annan, the UN Secretary General, former Israeli leader Shimon Peres and others, the UN unanimously adopted September 21 as a day of global cease-fire and nonviolence in 2002. In his book Peace One Day; The Making of World Peace Day, Gilley describes the journey to make Peace One Day a reality. The book is full of quotations, photographs and drawings from all over the world. One person can make a difference.
