* October 2, the day of Mahatma Gandhi's birth, is commemorated in his honor, as a pioneer of nonviolence, as World Nonviolence Day. On the UN website, it is explained to us regarding this commemoration: 'In accordance with resolution A/RES/61/271 of the General Assembly, of June 15, 2007, which established the commemoration, the International Day It is an occasion to “spread the message of nonviolence, including through education and public awareness.” The resolution reaffirms “the universal relevance of the principle of non-violence” and the desire to “ensure a culture of peace, tolerance, understanding and non-violence.” Introducing the resolution in the General Assembly on behalf of 140 co-sponsors, India's Minister of State for External Affairs Anand Sharma said the broad and diverse sponsorship of the resolution was a reflection of universal respect for Mahatma Gandhi and enduring relevance of his philosophy. Quoting the late leader's own words, he said: “Nonviolence is the greatest force at the disposal of humanity. It is more powerful than the most powerful weapon of destruction conceived by the ingenuity of man.”'

  1. We, the people, can do something so that this world changes and so that our children do not have to die in damn wars. I don't care what country they are from. They are our children.

  2. Thank you for making us participate in this initiative.
    Let us pray that it touches the sensitivity of the hearts of the people who decide to wage wars.
    They themselves and their children receive the consequences of their failure. Along the way they leave a trail of the destruction of Life on our planet Earth.
    Wake up! It's already getting late!
