Today, the 21st of September is International day of Peace and this year the theme is “Right to Peace” as well as the celebration of the 70th anniversary of this Declaration of Human Rights. Today’s day emphasizes calls for promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. A peaceful society is one where there is justice and equality for everyone. Peace will enable a sustainable environment to take shape and a sustainable environment will help promote peace. The Universal Declaration states in Article 3. “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.” These elements build the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world. Yet, the Universal Declaration does not include a separate article on “Right to Peace”. PSCORE has participated in the campaign of the United Nations to include this right as a fundamental human right.
This week from Tuesday to Thursday, President Moon Jae-in and company went to Pyongyang, North Korea to meet with Kim Jung-un for the third inter-Korean summit. A lot of agreements have been made that will seek to establish stronger ties between North and South Korea. A few agreements made during this summit include; Opening permanent family reunion facilities at an early date, to begin work to reconnect cross-border rails & roads this year, to resume inter-Korean projects such as Kaesong and Mount Kumgang, to make the Korean peninsula free of nuclear weapons as well as threats, and to permanently shut down missile test sites and nuclear facilities in North Korea. We hope this all will makes for irreversable Peace on the Korean Peninsula! ✨
2018 International Day of Peace
For the mother of the world no longer cry, for those who have died in the conflict, and the survivors who live in sorrow and pain every day. Let us voice the heart in silence: reject violence and call for peace! My wish is world peace.
On #InternationalDayOfPeace - I’m choosing to share this event taking place in Afghanistan in a week’s time: the country’s first ever Mountain Bike race.
Whilst sadly I can’t go, seeing an opportunity for youth to engage in sports makes me happy.
At first, the Mountain Bike Afghanistan cycling team went out to have fun and explore the terrain surrounding their city of Bamiyan on two wheels. And when they found enough places to ride, they started itching for a race so that they could show their favorite trails to the rest of valley’s cycling enthusiasts. That interest has led us to organize the Hindukush MTB Challenge, a cross-country mountain bike race for the first time EVER in Afghanistan. Though I am bummed I can’t be there physically (and that has meant providing guidance and support from afar, at times relying on my poor typing in Farsi), I am so freaking excited this is happening — a huge milestone in establishing mountain biking in Afghanistan. A special thank you to all of you for your contributions to Mountain Bike Afghanistan either through direct donations or buying our t-shirts, which has allowed for this to happen. If you still wish to make a contribution, please do so in the link in the comment section. Otherwise, stay hyped for the race! The fire has been kindled 🚵♀️😌👊🏽🇦🇫 @mtbafghanistan
The state of the world is not something to be ignored, it's fucked and forever will be thanks to the people who "run" it. They'll never listen to us.
However, it's days like today we can listen to each other and spend it sinking a few beers, smoking a fat one and analyse your life. Better yourself, you are the most important thing in your life. Live it how you want, fuck society, fuck the norms. Be ambitious, be loving, be recognised but do it for yourself. Shine the light you have on the darkness of this world, YOUR world.
International Peace Day ✌️🌍
Can we achieve it? One can dream...
Mesource bedeutet: Du bist deine größte Kraftquelle, deine beste Ressource.
Allerdings geht es nicht darum, sich nur noch auf sich selbst zu konzentrieren. Wir nehmen sowohl eine wertschätzende Haltung uns selbst gegenüber ein, als auch gegenüber unserer Mitmenschen.
Die Ergebnisse der Grant-Study, der größten Langzeitstudie zum Thema Glück aller Zeiten, zeigen, dass unsere wahre Glückseligkeit in der tiefen und echten Bindung zu anderen Menschen liegt.
Diese Erkenntnis ist sowohl heute zum #weltfriedenstag , als auch an jedem anderen Tag der Schlüssel zu einer emotional gesunden Gesellschaft.
Denn nur mit Empathie, Mitgefühl und einem gesunden Selbstwert können wir Brücken bauen zwischen den Menschen - statt Mauern in den Köpfen.
Today is the International day of peace. The UN declared this day with the goal of one day without war or violence. Also today, the world day of gratitude. I’m grateful that I am where I am, and for the beautiful people in my life. What are you grateful for? #peace#grateful#gratitude#worldpeace#wishfulthinking
Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
The United Nations Member States adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals in 2015 because they understood that it would not be possible to build a peaceful world if steps were not taken to achieve economic and social development for all people everywhere, and ensure that their rights were protected. The Sustainable Goals cover a broad range of issues, including poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, environment and social justice.
2018 Theme: “The Right to Peace - The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70”. The theme celebrates the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations.
The Universal Declaration – the most translated document in the world, available in more than 500 languages - is as relevant today as it was on the day that it was adopted.
The Universal Declaration states in Article 3. “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person.” These elements build the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world.
Yet, the Universal Declaration does not include a separate article on “Right to Peace”. This is why the U.N.org ask you this year:
What does “The Right to Peace” mean to you? Share your ideas through #peaceday and #standup4humanrights .
Today is the UN's International Day of Peace, when people all over the world create and attend events that focus on fostering a culture of peace.
Today you are invited to pause, take a few moments, light a candle and connect to the inner resource of peace that we all have access to.
In any given moment we can create world peace, because everyone everywhere is looking for the same thing – a sense of happiness in their lives, contentment within themselves and fulfilment in what they are doing.
So today, "be the change you wish to see in the world". You might like to try this World peace flame peace meditation:
Sit in a comfortable position. Relax your body and focus on your breath for a few moments, allowing the natural rhythm of your breathing to bring a deep sense of relaxation to you.
Begin to think of a situation of conflict or unrest and construct a picture of it at heart level in front of you. The situation could be with someone you love or perhaps of something that is happening in the world.
Once this picture has formed, imagine you are breathing in a golden light from a space above the crown of your head. Breathe this light down through the crown and into your heart. As you breathe out send this light from the heat towards the picture in front of you.
Continue this for several breathes. Breathing in and drawing a golden glow through the crown to the heart, breathing out and sending this light towards the picture in front of you.
As the light touches the people or places involved, see the pain and suffering begin to dissolve and peace gradually take its place.
Watch smiles and relief coming onto the faces of the people in your picture.
When you feel the transformation is complete, allow the image in front of you to fade, take your awareness to the golden glow which has built up around the heart and simply rest in silence. 🙏❤️

Selamat Hari Perdamaian Internasional!
Hari Perdamaian Internasional (bahasa Inggris: International Day of Peace), terkadang secara tidak resmi ada yang menyebutnya Hari Perdamaian Dunia (World Peace Day), diperingati setiap tahun pada tanggal 21 September. Peringatan ini didedikasikan demi perdamaian dunia, dan secara khusus demi berakhirnya perang dan kekerasan.
Ada satu ungkapan dalam masyarakat Tolaki, Sulawesi Tenggara, yang dikenal sebagai Pe'olili (pesan-pesan leluhur) yang berbunyi "Mombeku saramasiako meosa manusia" yang artinya 'Saling mencintai sesama manusia'. Ayo buat dunia sekitar kita semakin damai, dimulai dengan cinta.
