Tuesday, Sept. 16, was International Day of Peace. I didn’t know this fact until I opened the devotional book and there it was before me.

On Nov. 30, 1981, the United Nations General Assembly set aside an International Day of Peace, as a promise to strengthen peace among nations and people. We know the world isn’t at peace now, but what can we each do to promote peace in our world?

I decided that I would set aside the day as my own day of peace. I would let the mother with a fretting child ahead of me at the grocery store, put the mayo in the fridge so it won’t irritate my family, and not repeat gossip. I would also try to soothe away the irritations of the people around me and refuse to give way to my own irritations.

Maybe, if each of us begins today and helps to bring peace about in small ways, we can be like the ticking of a clock that keeps ticking no matter what is going on in the room. We can show steadiness, constancy--that sense of peace.

Maybe our world won’t ever be perfect, but if we work toward it bit by bit, who knows what will happen? Start your own peace day by thinking of three ways you can make the world a more peaceful and loving place.
