If you live or will be visiting the Miami, FL area this month, join us in standing for something worth all the grains of sand on the beach while there – peace. On September 21, 2014, many will gather on Miami’s shore to unite to honor a cessation of hostilities during the International Day of Peace as declared by the United Nations.
This is a holiday observed worldwide. The United States General Assembly declared this a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples. Many nations will demonstrate their appreciation of this sentiment in different ways. This can be done by gathering on a beach to form a sign of peace, or through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.
In Miami, this will be a huge effort to form peace with as many people as we can muster. I wonder how many we can fit!? Do join this fantastic effort meant to inspire peace, nonviolence and a great opportunity to meet fellow change makers while sending a message of peace to the world. The event is free and open to all ages.
If you would like to be a part of the peace, head over to 71st and Collins on Sunday, September 21, 2014. The actual Peace Sign will begin formation between 5-5:30 p.m. Make sure you get there early enough to find parking and make your way down to the “peaceful” area.
Tweet and post about your peaceful experiences on this day #peaceday wherever you are — and if you are in Miami, #peacemiami. See you at the beach!
