Peace Day - September 21
|The Peace One Day (POD) film project began as the vision of one man, British filmmaker, Jeremy Gilley. Launched in September 1999, POD gained active support from all sectors of society, from governments through to individuals. In September 2001, POD achieved its primary objective. |
A United Nations General Assembly resolution (A/Res/55/282), put forward by the UK and Costa Rican governments, was unanimously adopted by all UN member states, formally establishing an annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on the UN International Day of Peace, fixed in the global calendar on 21 September - Peace Day.
All sectors of society are being asked to honour and celebrate the Day on 21 September. The vision of the Day extends far beyond the cessation of violent conflict and represents an opportunity for individuals to join in a moment of global unity.
Peace One Day - The Film.
Watch the six one-minute infomercials used to raise awareness of the Day around the world.
And here is a Trailer at Google Video.
At 12 noon on September 21st, let us take one Minute of Silence together for peace and nonviolence - in our homes, schools, businesses, or street corners, wherever we are.
"September 21, the International Day of Peace, is a day on which we reaffirm our commitment to this quest...
It is meant to be a day of global cease-fire, when all countries and all people stop all hostilities for the entire day.
And it is a day on which people around the world observe a minute of silence at 12 noon local time.
Twenty-four hours is not a long time.
But it is... long enough to look over the barricades, or through the barbed wire, to see if there is another path."

Carl Jung: Psychologist or sorcerer?
by The Sierra Times.

Local Man Investigates Paranormal
Lester is a generalist, letting explorations of Big Foot sightings lead him to the study of ghosts which lead him to the study of UFOs which lead him to look at conspiracy theories. He describes himself as a generalist, interested in everything that’s unexplained and unsolved. He’s seen a lot of things during the course of his investigations and research. Some of them he’s convinced are real. Some he knows are hoaxes.
King of Tramps is an Elusive Member of Hunting Party
|13 crystal Maya skulls will save the world by Pravda.|
Ancient tribe of Maya passed on a legend that tells of the 13 crystal sculls able to save the world from a terrible catastrophe. The skulls have mystical qualities: they can bring their owners into the state of hypnosis, cause people to hallucinate or have dreams about ancient Indians. Some say they can even make wishes come true.
It has been three years since a ghost began revealing himself to me on hunting trips, and I'm still not sure what message he means to send from the afterlife. It is clear he has a fondness for hunting dogs or perhaps all dogs of a friendly nature, and he must enjoy the lonely prairies of the Midwest.
Voices in the head 'are normal'
by BBC News.
Contrary to traditional belief, hearing voices is not necessarily a symptom of mental illness, UK researchers at Manchester University say. Indeed, many who hear voices do not seek help and say the voices have a positive impact on their lives, comforting or inspiring them.
'Angel' spotted on the Thames
|After the Great Fire of London a mysterious story started being whispered across the charred city. People began claiming they had seen an angel floating above the Thames. Soon the sightings stopped and the myth disappeared. Then during the First World War the angel returned. Then again during the Second World War. Each time there were six sightings and many believed they represented the number of people who died in the fire in 1666.|
