UN International Day of Peace @ 140 McLaughlin College, Senior Common Room | Toronto | Ontario | Canada

Every year, since 1981, the International Day of Peace is celebrated around the world. The United Nations General Assembly devotes this day "to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples." Unanimously approved, General Assembly Resolution 36/67, further states: "since wars begin in the minds of men, it is in the minds of men that the defence of peace must be constructed, that a peace based exclusively upon the political and economic arrangements of Governments would not be a peace which could secure the unanimous, lasting and sincere support of the peoples of the world, and that the peace must therefore be founded, if it is not to fail, upon the intellectual and moral solidarity of mankind."
