Join the International Day of Peace 2015 Campaign! 16.10.2015 06:04:00Dear readers of the Ringing Cedars of Russia series!
This summer Vladimir Megre participated at the 5th Annual Nexus Global Youth Summit at the United Nations.
At the summit the U.N. Special Envoy Ray Chambers announced plans for a new campaign around peace and forgiveness that would be launched on the International Day of Peace on September 21st.
The #FORGIVEFORPEACE awareness campaign supports the U.N. Secretary-General's call for a 24-hour cease fire for September 21st, and hopes to amplify the reach of the call for a day of non-violence. The organizer of the summit, Nexus is a part of the #FORGIVEFORPEACE campaign; and it invites each of you to share in the campaign to promote both inner peace and global peace. Nexus is confident that the campaign supports the idea that forgiveness is the first step on the path towards peace, and that thru the act of forgiveness we can cultivate meaningful and lasting change and catalyze a new generation of peace-keepers. We can amplify the call to peace by announcing the idea of the new way of life in the Family Homesteads as the only remedy capable of seizing the tension between different nations, social groups, countries, stop the violence and put an end to wars.
How can you help?
