We are born and breed in a language of violence. And every day we see another chunk of humanity sink down into the abyss of darkness and mayhem. There is nothing sacred about wars.
World Hello Day is annually observed on November 21 to promote the idea that conflicts should be resolved through communication rather than by use of force. To express the importance of personal communication in preserving peace, participants verbally greet ten people or more on this day.
Make art, not weapons of war. Today we celebrate the International Day of Peace. Let us believe once again that peace is possible. We are the victims of terrible imagination. We are the victims of our own hatred. Let us change that. Let us escape from the language of violence and wake up into a free world. A world free from organised horror and spontaneous mayhem.
Let us reimagine our world.
