Today, on the International Day of Peace, I would like to add my voice to the worldwide chorus of people longing for peace in these troubled times. I thank and honor all those who are facing today’s violence by speaking out for peace and working diligently to make it a reality. I call upon everyone currently caught in conflict to observe this day of cease-fire and non-violence. And I rededicate myself to doing all that I can to help build a world of true and lasting peace.
The theme of the 2015 International Day of Peace, “Partnerships for Peace — Dignity for All,” resonates powerfully with us at Arigatou International.
