100-Day Countdown to the UN International Day of Peace
The UN has dedicated the 2015 International Day of Peace to "Partnerships for Peace -- Dignity for All." The Summer of Peace leading up to September 21st gives us the opportunity to move from concern about the great challenges facing our world to taking a stand on Peace Day as one human community united in hope. We will discuss plans at the United Nations and around the world to highlight the actions of people serving a wide range of causes yet building together a new culture of peace.
This session includes a performance of Rev. Patrick McCollum's "Peace Violin." To download a recording of the Violin at high fidelity, click here.
J. Frederick Arment is director of International Cities of Peace and a founder of the Dayton International Peace Museum. His new book, The Elements of Peace: How Nonviolence Works, grapples with the great diversity of peacemaking and how the virtues a person possesses determines which of of the thirty methods they choose to pursue in their activism.
