It’s #InternationalDayofPeace

September 21 is #InternationalDayofPeace

Post written by Brandy Mmbaga

If there is one thing we could all use a little more of, IT’S PEACE! (you can say that again!) Well, lucky for us, it’s #INTERNATIONALDAYOFPEACE.

Established in 1981, the United Nations created a day to observe National Peace, or, Peace Day, in efforts to promote humanity. Every year, International Peace Day takes place on 21st of September. The theme for this year is “The Right to Peace – The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70.” This refers to the declaration adopted by the UN which was written by a widely diverse set of country representatives and is available in 500 languages. Furthermore, the number 70 as seen in this year’s theme refers to this year’s marking of the 70th anniversary of #InternationalPeaceDay. On the UN’s website, they ask you: “What does “The Right to Peace” mean to you? Share your ideas with us through #peaceday and #standup4humanright.”

For me, the right to peace means that all humans have equal rights and that diversity is embraced.

Social Studio is so awesome. By using it, we can see that 25% of the conversation for Peace Day is happening right here in the US, followed by others such as the United Kingdom, India, New Zealand, Italy and Malaysia. The overall sentiment is 92% positive as people are taking to Twitter all over to express their support and offer their piece on peace.

So, join in on the conversation. The #ABSMCC sends peaceful vibes to you on this #InternationalPeaceDay.
