What can you do?

Last week, was International Peace Day, and I had nothing, haha. I am just so out of peace for people. But, over the weekend we had such a lovely weather. It was cold, but the Spring sun was out and not only did I get some vitamin D, but I actually had some ideas about how you can spread some peace about.

Now this is all going to be some ideas about what you can do for yourself. I find that when you are at peace, you can spread the peace to others. You can’t spread peace, if you are not at peace.

  • I find that even spending a day or two off of platforms like Twitter, Facebook, even Instagram, can clear out my head, a lot. Those platforms are such a mental health mess.
  • Do something outside, once a day. Do anything outside, for at least 10 minutes or more. Even during horrible weather. You can even just sit outside, watch the world go by.
  • Listen to your body.
  • Ask yourself questions. Would you really be okay if you left that task until tomorrow? Even if you can, would you be alright with that? If not, do it today, no matter how tedious.

When you’ve figured out how you’re doing, when you are at peace with yourself and your life. It becomes MUCH easier to help bring peace to others. Nothing bothers you as much, it’s all fine and dandy.

Peace starts with you.

Those are my wise words for the day, lol


International Day of Peace (United Nations)

Well where I do begin? Haha.

The world does not feel very peaceful at the moment, does it?

While we cannot control others, we can help others still and we can help give ourselves the power to give ourselves peace.

Be at peace, knowing though, that YOU do have the power to change your attitude and how you treat others.

Guns = Peaceful now?

Do you all remember Colin Kapernick? He is a NFL player who knelt, instead of standing for the National Anthem. In a protest against racism…and probably, to be honest, against the racist that is Trump. Do you all remember what happened?

“Lock those sons of bitches up”.

“Lynch him”

Now, we have “The Walking Dumb” “peacefully protesting” with guns and trying to bang down doors…So peaceful. Where are the police? In every single one of these protests, I have to yet to see a single officer. Making sure those with guns, don’t actually use them. I have seen nurses and doctors trying to ban these people, more than officers.

Who do these people think they are? The militia against the virus? “The invisible enemy”. How can people take your guns away, if you’re in your house with your guns? You are more likely to get your gun taken away, brandishing it about like that…IF THEY WERE BLACK. Can you imagine BLM marches, just being allowed to do this? Can you imagine seeing NO officers around? The racism in America, is just becoming more and more blatant.

How on EARTH were they able to get THAT close?!



Batman and Peace

What a day today! Not only is it Batman Day but it’s also International Peace Day. Coincidence? I think not!…Or maybe it is?lol

September 21 is Batman Day and DC Comics has a special celebration involving the iconic Bat-Signal to mark the 80th birthday of Bruce Wayne’s alter ego. According to a story in The Hollywood Reporter (THR), the annual celebration of DC’s Dark Knight, launched by the comic book giant to commemorate the characters 75th anniversary in 2014, will see DC and Warner Bros organise a special way to help fans keep track of where in the world the Batversary is taking place.

According to THR, the Bat-Signal will light up the skies in Melbourne, Australia, before crossing the globe throughout the day — with stops in Tokyo, Berlin, Paris, Barcelona, London, São Paulo, New York, Montreal and Mexico City before ending in Los Angeles.

International Day of Peace is celebrated worldwide on 21 September each year to recognise the efforts of those who have worked hard to eliminate the conflicts and promote peace.

2019 Theme: “Climate Action for Peace”

World Freedom Day

World Freedom Day was originally observed and started by then President George W. Bush 2001, in commemoration of the fall of the Berlin Wall…It’s almost ironic now really, when you think of current topics.

In a lot of First World Countries, we tend to take a lot of our Freedoms for granted, we just always assume they will always be there. Although it seems like a lot of our Freedoms feel under attack at the moment, this is the day to remember those who are not so fortunate.

Take the time today to read about Freedom, think about what it means to you and what you can do to help others achieve theirs.


United Nations Day

United Nations Day

Who are the United Nations?

The United Nations is an International organisation which was founded in 1945. Just after World War II, to found International Peace.

Due to the powers vested in its Charter and its unique international character, the United Nations can take action on the issues confronting humanity in the 21st century, such as peace and security, climate change, sustainable development, human rights, disarmament, terrorism, humanitarian and health emergencies, gender equality, governance, food production, and more.

Why United Nations DAY

UN Day marks the anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter. With the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the United Nations officially came into being.

24 October has been celebrated as United Nations Day since 1948. In 1971, the United Nations General Assembly recommended that the day be observed by as a public holiday.

The United Nations promote or try to help with:

  • Education
  • Disarming (mainly weapons of War)
  • Better living quality

One Voice Day


One Voice Day

Although this not an official holiday, I do like the idea of this day.

Here is The Universal Peace Covenant

Peace is the breath of our spirit.

It wells up from within the depths of our being to refresh, to heal, to inspire.

Peace is our birthright.

Its eternal presence exists within us as a memory of where we have come from and as a vision of where we yearn to go.

Our world is in the midst of change.
For millennia, we have contemplated, reasoned, and practiced the idea of peace. Yet the capacity to sustain peace eludes us. To transcend the limits of our own thinking we must acknowledge that peace is more than the cessation of conflict. For peace to move across the face of the earth we must realize, as the great philosophers and leaders before us, that all people desire peace. We hereby acknowledge this truth that is universal. Now humanity must desire those things that make for peace.

We affirm that peace is an idea whose time has come.
We call upon humanity to stand united, responding to the need for peace. We call upon each individual to create and foster a personal vision for peace. We call upon each family to generate and nurture peace within the home. We call upon each nation to encourage and support peace among its citizens. We call upon each leader, be they in the private home, house of worship or place of labor, to be a living example of peace for only in this way can we expect peace to move across the face of the earth.

World Peace begins within ourselves.
Arising from the spirit peace seeks expression through the mind, heart, and body of each individual. Government and laws cannot heal the heart. We must transcend whatever separates us. Through giving love and respect, dignity and comfort, we come to know peace. We learn to love our neighbors as we love ourselves bringing peace into the world. We hereby commit ourselves to this noble endeavor.

Peace is first a state of mind.
Peace affords the greatest opportunity for growth and learning which leads to personal happiness. Self-direction promotes inner peace and therefore leads to outer peace. We vow to heal ourselves through forgiveness, gratitude, and prayer. We commit to causing each and every day to be a fulfillment of our potential, both human and divine.

Peace is active, the motion of silence, of faith, of accord, of service.
It is not made in documents but in the minds and hearts of men and women. Peace is built through communication. The open exchange of ideas is necessary for discovery, for well-being, for growth, for progress whether within one person or among many. We vow to speak with sagacity, listen with equanimity, both free of prejudice, thus we will come to know that peace is liberty in tranquility.

Peace is achieved by those who fulfill their part of a greater plan.
Peace and security are attained by those societies where the individuals work closely to serve the common good of the whole. Peaceful coexistence between nations is the reflection of man’s inner tranquility magnified. Enlightened service to our fellowman brings peace to the one serving, and to the one receiving. We vow to live in peace by embracing truths that apply to us all.

Living peaceably begins by thinking peacefully.
We stand on the threshold of peace-filled understanding. We come together, all of humanity, young and old of all cultures from all nations. We vow to stand together as citizens of the Earth knowing that every question has an answer, every issue a resolution. As we stand, united in common purpose, we hereby commit ourselves in thought and action so we might know the power of peace in our lifetimes.

Peace be with us all ways. May Peace Prevail On Earth.
