September 21 is celebrated every year as the International Day of Peace. The day is dedicated to world peace and, specifically, is a call to an end to wars and violence globally.

The International Day of Peace, which is also known as World Peace Day, was drafted and adopted by the United Nations in 1948.

The United Nations celebrated the International Day of Peace for the first time in 1982. On this day the United Nations Peace Bell is rung at the UN headquarters in New York.

The theme for World Peace Day 2018 is: “The Right to Peace – The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70”

“It is time all nations and all people live up to the words of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which recognizes the inherent dignity and equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human race. This year marks the 70th anniversary of that landmark document,” said UN Secretary-General António Guterres.

In 2018, India moved up to four places to the 137th rank on the global peace index.

People around the globe took to social media platforms to celebrate the World peace Day.

Here are some tweets wishing people on the occasion of the International Day of Peace.

Today is the International Day of Peace. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Respect for human rights, and consequently, the right to live in peace and dignity must always be respected

Unfortunately, for most people peace has become the highest goal in life. Such people will only rest in peace. We need to understand that peace is the most fundamental requirement, not the highest goal. -Sg
