Peacemaking that Counts!

More Expressions of Peace HERE.

We all say things like "peace, brother"; "may peace be with you"; "peace on earth"... but what does it mean? How can we feel peace? How do we spread peace? The United Nation has designated the 21st of September as International day of peace, with each person observing one minute of silence at noon in their own country and time zone. If we all do that, it will be a silent moment traveling the whole world!

We at Hello Little World, Global Classroom, and Global Virtual Classroom are celebrating Peace month, putting together many ideas.
