In honor of International Peace Day, we are showcasing the work of Jon Kolkin, from his body of work Inner Harmony.

Since 1982, the International Day of Peace has begun with the ringing of the Peace Bell at the United Nations headquarters, New York.

Peace means so much more than an absence of war. More ordinary conflicts arise from disputes with family, colleagues and neighbours and these disturb our sense of peace. Making peace with one person today, even if it is just with yourself, is a fitting way to mark the day. Light a candle, reflect, forgive and enjoy being tranquil.

Parents, do you reward your children when they share toys and help each other? Learning how to solve disputes without aggression is a great way to enjoy peace day. A sponsored toddle can raise funds for peace charities and tire out the little ones. Bliss!

Peace needs building, not just celebrating. Make everyday your day of peace as you work towards harmony at home, school, work and in the community.
