The fantabulous holiday that is known as U.N. International Day of Peace (or so says my calendar) is upon us! Now I know I said I was planning something for it – and I am. Just not for today. I realized there was definitely not enough time in one month’s time to plan a quality event. So I am aiming for the spring. I mean, peace can happen any time! And as long as we say we are raising awareness for Peace One Day, it counts as a Peace One Day celebration! I do have a comrade who decided to help me in this endeavor. He said he wants to graduate “with a bang”. And considering this was my idea, that will definitely happen. Since I’m so dang hardcore.
Anyway, don’t think I am shirking on my promised duties, I am getting there. Would you rather have a celebration in autumn weather that is lukewarm and fairly attended, or a festival in the beautiful springtime (therefore, not mud-soaked and humid, hopefully) that has been well-planned and thought-out, and very well attended? It’s your decision, but I would lean towards the second option!
However, since on my 20 before 20 list, it says “celebrate Peace One Day every year” not “Plan a festival in honor of POD every year”, I will be attending a local peace day this Sunday. To scope out the scene…
Happy International Day of Peace everyone!! Remember to do something peaceful (that makes you happy)!
