The Bell of Peace
“THE BELL OF PEACE” PROJECT
On September 21, 1981, the International Day of Peace was established by a resolution of the UN General Assembly. The holiday was to symbolize a rejection of violence and an appeal for the ceasefire worldwide. On the day, people are supposed to think of their actions, of what each of us has done for peace. A ceremony of celebration begins with the voice of the Bell of Peace, which, besides the Day of Peace, sounds on other significant and memorable days, on the day of spring equinox, on the Earth Day, etc.
This solemn act has inspired the International Public Association “Generals of the World – for Peace” to announce the establishment of “the Bell of Peace” Project. Its purpose is to promote the ideas of peace and non-violence, to remind people how fragile our planet is, and that every person is capable to improve it by own powers!
According to the plan of the founders of IPA “Generals of the World – for Peace”, the Bells of Peace are to be installed in cities worldwide where our NATIONAL SECTIONS operate, or on the initiative of active participants of SECTORAL MOVEMENTS, as a symbol of peace, friendship, brotherhood and solidarity of the peoples living in our common house named the Earth.
With the support and participation of local authorities, the objects of installation in the form of monuments with bells are planned to be installed in parks, on squares or other public places approved by the authorities. Such objects can become landmark places for various events, including solemn, official, private, etc., the main thing is that such an event or action does not contradict the peaceful idea and purpose of the BELLS OF PEACE.
It is important to remember: their sounds call us all to feel the unity, to find mutual understanding of people, to stand up for peace and defence of the our planet.
May the voice of “THE BELL OF PEACE” Project of IPA “Generals of the World – for Peace” reach your hearts! Just stop for a minute and think of peace, justice and our common future. Life in the world must become the property of everyone living on this beautiful planet!
