Diversity Equality Inclusion - September 21, 2023

Peace: The Key to a Better World

by Clara Payna, RMA and Care Partner in Stonebrook


September 21 was International Day of Peace, an annual event supported by the United Nations. Peace is a word that holds great meaning for all of us. When I think about peace, many ideas come to
my mind.


Peace …

it’s not just the absence of fighting; it’s a state of harmony and cooperation among people.

Peace …

in a place is so important. We can all contribute to making our world a more peaceful place.

Peace …

means that people are getting along, and there is no violence or conflict. It’s like big puzzles where all the pieces fit together without any problems. It is essential for a happy and healthy world.

Peace …

in peaceful communities, people feel safe and secure.

Peace …

helps people make friends and build strong relationships.

Peace …

in peaceful countries, kids can go to school and learn without fear.


Peace …

leads to happier lives for everyone.


Peace …

sometimes, it can be hard to have peace. When people get angry, they might do things they later regret. Not understanding each other can lead to fights.

Peace …

there’s chaos in the world right now. We need to love more and listen more and talk more. Listening and learning from each other will give us peace.

Peace …

sometimes just listening to others can solve problems. Talk, don’t fight. Instead of using a fist, use words to solve disagreements. Help others and offer help when possible. Helping others creates peace.


We all have a role in making the world a more peaceful place: Treat others the way you want to be treated. Be kind and polite. Help us all to enjoy more peace.
