About World Peace Day
When is World Peace Day? This holiday is always observed on November 17
World Peace Day encourages us to be kind to others and teach others to be peaceful. This November 17 holiday pursues the goal of peace everywhere. Throughout the history of the human race, long-lasting peace has been elusive. But, it is possible, and we should never stop working towards this goal.
The creator to this day, encourages us as individuals, to play a role in making the world a better place. The creator believes it starts with us. He suggests we teach our children and others, in ways to promote peace and avoid war. He also invites us to write to our county’s leadership about our support for peace and world harmony. Without peace, the consequences are tragic.
