Whirled Peace


The 'Diva' does it again!
Challenge #40 is for International Day of Peace. TODAY. September 21st.
She passed along information about Pinwheels for Peace
What a wonderful idea! 


All over the world there are places putting out pinwheels 
to remember our hope for peace.
and the most creative motto - whirled peace
while my ZIA is not complete,
I just had to get it  posted in time for International Day of Peace

It was established by a United Nations resolution in 1981 to coincide with the opening of the General Assembly. The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982. In 2002 the General Assembly officially declared September 21 as the permanent date for the International Day of Peace. By creating the International Day of Peace, the UN devoted itself to worldwide peace and encouraged all of mankind to work in cooperation for this goal.
