Today is the United Nations International Day of Peace...

"There is no trust more sacred than the one the world holds with children. There is no duty more important than ensuring that their rights are respected, that their welfare is protected, that their lives are free from fear and want and that they grow up in peace." Kofi Annan

Those of us looking for peace will today remember that we must continue to work to make the world a better place for our children and young people. Each year, events take place all around the world for the International Day of Peace which provide an opportunity to inspire individuals and empower communities to bring peace to our children and young people.

But what can I do I hear you ask. Simple, you can light a candle, providing a little bit of light in the darkness, and just think about the millions of children whose lives are blighted by poverty, fear and war.
