When we think about September, we think about fall foliage, apples, and pumpkin spice lattes. But, did you know that September is also the month that contains the International Day of Peace?
The holiday was first started by the United Nations in 1981. For the past few years, the United Nations had dedicated this day to a peaceful cause in hopes of raising awareness on global issues that continue to affect all of us.
Some of the themes for the past few years include: human rights, education and democracy.
This year's focus is on climate change--urging people to take action on combating climate change and raising awareness on sustainability and green initiatives.
