Inspirations for International Peace Day

Still I have deep faith in humanity and I know peace is possible. The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes from the souls of people. Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding. Peace is a long journey every one of us must take steps to achieve that. We are made of different colors and we have different cultures. We are all different! We need to learn to accept and love differences in the world.

International Day of Peace is observed on September 21st each year. On this day, the UN urges all hostilities to stop and embrace every one with love. Sometimes unofficially this day is called as World Peace Day. The day was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly and in 2001, the General Assembly voted to designate the day as a period of non-violence and ceasefire.

To mark the day, here is 16 famous quotes with images about peace.
