Monday is the United Nations’ International Day of Peace, and events are planned around the world. One of them is “A Million Minutes for Peace,” an effort to have as many people as possible pray or send good thoughts at noon on Monday September 21st–a 60-second blessing for global harmony.

You can sign the multi-faith “pledge for peace” here–the idea is to get one million people to promise to send this prayer. Check out this moving video, below, of young people encouraging the pledge. One man says, “I believe prayer connects people of all faiths.” Your prayer can be super simple, like: “May peace prevail on earth.” If it’s true what they say about thoughts affecting reality, this is a powerful gesture to a violent world. And of course it’s also about raising awareness and getting people involved.
