INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE

Dear Parents

Greetings

BECAUSE WE ALL SHARE THIS PLANET EARTH, WE HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE IN HARMONY AND PEACE WITH EACH OTHER AND WITH NATURE, THIS IS NOT JUST A DREAM BUT A NECESSITY.

-Dalai Lama

Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.

This year, it has been clearer than ever that we are not each other’s enemies. Rather, our common enemy is a tireless virus that threatens our health, security and very way of life. COVID-19 has thrown our world into turmoil and forcibly reminded us that what happens in one part of the planet can impact people everywhere.

As we struggle to defeat COVID-19, people’s voice is more important than ever. In these difficult times of physical distancing, this International Day of Peace will be dedicated to fostering dialogue and collecting ideas. The world will be invited to unite and share thoughts on how to weather this storm, heal our planet and change it for the better. Even though we may not be able to stand next to each other, we can still dream together.

The 2020 theme for the International Day of Peace is “Shaping Peace Together.” RKS has prepared to celebrate the day by spreading compassion, kindness and hope in the face of the pandemic by organising certain activities:Let’s stand together against attempts to use the virus to promote discrimination or hatred so that we can shape peace together.
