Teacher: «Our topic today is the day which is called The Day of Peace. Have you ever heard about it? September 21 is the International Day of Peace and UNESCO has joined hands with other UN entities, International Organizations and Civil Society to strengthen actions towards achieving peace in the world. Founded in 1953, the UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet), commonly referred to as UNESCO Associated Schools, is a global network of more than 8.500 educational institutions in 180 countries. We, as a Member institution, work in support of international understanding, peace, intercultural dialogue, sustainable development and quality education in practice. That is why it is important for us to know and to take part in the celebration of the Peace Day”

There are many ways to promote peace in the world but perhaps the best way is to promote it within ourselves. Peace is a gradual and wonderful event that occurs because compassionate people are inspired to help others discover the joy of peace! Helping others also has the direct effect of increasing our personal peace and well-being, but this is merely one of the many bonuses that come from sharing our kindness with our fellow human beings. It is better to give than to receive

Peace, like reading, writing, mathematics, drawing, emotional intelligence and enlightenment (”understanding/comprehension/compassion/meditation/intuition”), are learned skills that improve our knowledge, maturity, health, happiness and longevity. Peace is probably the most important lesson we should learn during our lives and the sooner the better. The advent of the world wide web may just provide the boost in knowledge & peace humankind has been waiting for. Improved communication may be the difference between extiction and survival. Through knowledge, Peace will evolve. Knowledge is power. Knowledge combined with enlightenment leads to wisdom. Wisdom is Peace!

The topic of PEACE is always urgent. Read the phrases given. Have you ever heard them in a song? (the answer – Black Eyed Peas –Where is the love)

• we try to stop terrorism

But we still got terrorists here living

• if you only have love for your own race

Then you only leave space to discriminate

And to discriminate only generates hate

And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate

• Madness is what you demonstrate

And that’s exactly how anger works and operates

• Nations are dropping bombs

Chemical gasses’re filling lungs of little ones

With ongoing suffering as the youth die young

• Not respecting each other, deny the brother

A war is going on but the reason’s undercover

The truth is kept secret, it’s swept under the rug

If you never know truth then you never know love

• Wrong information is always shown by the media

Negative images is the main criteria

Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria

Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema

• whatever happened to the values of humanity

Whatever happened to the fairness in equality

Instead of spreading love we’re spreading animosity

Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity

Everybody respects educated people who have reached a lot. Those people are examples for us as they have the wisdom and the experience. These are some quotes. Which do you find the most apt turn of phrase ?

Peace has never come from dropping bombs. Real peace comes from enlightenment and educating people to behave more in a divine manner.

Carlos Santana(a Mexican American rock guitarist)

Peace be with you.

Peace is more important than all justice; and was not made for the sake of justice, but justice for the sake of peace.
