Hi, everyone! My name is Jeremy Gilley. Eleven years ago, I had the idea to create an annual day of global ceasefire and nonviolence: Peace Day. I wanted it to be like Mother’s Day or Valentine’s Day. I just couldn’t understand all the fighting and suffering happening around me and I wanted to do something about it. I’m a filmmaker, so I decided to make a film about my journey to get this day recognized. Other people might have written a book, but I see the world through images and stories as told in films, so for me it made perfect sense. I had no idea what would happen, but I knew I had to try.

After traveling the world, speaking to country leaders and school children trying to make this day happen, I actually succeeded. Amazingly, in 2001, every member state of the United Nations adopted the day, September 21, as Peace Day. The UN resolution asks everyone in the world — governments, organizations, and individuals like you and me — to mark September 21 each year. Since the resolution was passed, I have been working hard to spread the message so that everyone around the world knows about Peace Day.

This year, I am more excited than ever about Peace Day and I hope with your help, it will be our best year yet! Lots of wonderful things are happening on THE STACKS including a new Message Board to talk about peace, and a Live Chat on Peace Day itself. 

WHEN: Peace Day! Tuesday, September 21, 2010 3 p.m. ET (12 Noon PT)
WHERE: THE STACKS (See below for instructions to join the chat.)
TOPIC: World Peace

Speaking to young people is what inspires me, so make sure you stop by for the Live Chat on September 21. It really is up to you to create a more peaceful world. Please tell your friends, family and teachers and invite them join in the celebrations!
