The International Day of Peace, September 21, was established in 1981 by unanimous United Nations resolution. Peace Day provides a globally shared date for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace.
The International Day of Peace will be marked once again in the Tri-Cities with events in Fremont’s Central Park. There will be a “Peace Walk” around Lake Elizabeth starting at 5:00. Then, at 6:00 p.m., the Interfaith Community will gather at the Peace Pole (near the Lake Elizabeth Boat House) for a simple prayer service that will include words from many different faith traditions. Everyone is encouraged to attend these events.
