    In 1981, The United Nations adopted a resolution for a special day for everyone to focus on world peace. That special Day is now celebrated each September 21st across the world, with activities extending over the period of a week. Celebrities such as Bono, Angelina Jolie, Sting, and many others have begun participating in this focus.

    In recent years, millions of people across the world have recognized that there is a special power in numbers -- if many people focus simultaneously on a desired result that result is more likely to happen. In other words, we are creators -- let's now create a peaceful world!

    Many people will be meditating or praying tomorrow. One suggestion is to begin with a visualization of "peace" in your own personal life, and then extend that visualization to peace in the world. It's very helpful to add your feelings of what that "peace" will be like to your visualization.

    You're welcome.

    I wasn't aware of there was such a thing myself until a few days ago.

    Peace to you, Rainbow.
