International Peace Day is officially Sept. 21st each year. But we, Young Ethical Explorers at ETHICAL NYC, grow to deeply understand that everyday is actually Peace Day. Just like every day is … Earth Day…. These holidays are just reminders, rejuvenators of our everyday appreciations. So on this International Day of Peace, we simply got a reminder to reconnect thoughtfully to how we are bringing ourselves into the equation of peace on Earth.
In this equation of peace, maybe you will decide, right here and now, to augment your own peace vision with one new commitment. It could be to learn a new peace skill like Non-Violent Communication, or it could be to participate in Ethical NYC’s Good Neighbor project. It could be to dive deeper into meditation. It could be to connect more across bridges of age, gender, race… and with that, please plan to come to Ethical’s First Sunday Events ~ the next one of which is a visit from Dr. Arun Gandhi at 11:00am on Oct. 2nd. There are so many ways to CHOOSE to cultivate peace — and ETHICAL NYC comes at this from so many angles… get involved .
Honoring International Peace Day this year, a wonderful YEE group of all ages gathered on an ETHICAL FIELD TRIP to the United Nations for the Youth Observance of this special holiday. Many thanks go to Lindy Crescitelli of Pathways to Peace (and also Gandhi/King SFN) and his amazing twin-team hosts Rebecca and Rachel for bringing Ethical into this event.
