With escalating tensions around the world, the largest refugee crisis in the history of humanity, and cataclysmic changes in climate, people everywhere are yearning for peace. The United Nations has declared each September 21 as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and people. On Peace Day, millions of viewers in 132 countries will make the choice for peace by participating in Unity Foundation’s 10th Annual Peace Day Global Broadcast. The broadcast streams from the United Nations website for the International Day of Peace, or directly from PeaceChannel.com, a non-profit organization.
