Check out the LIVE BROADCAST

This is a very special day that we can all take part in. We all want a peaceful world but just imagine what it would be like to have at least a whole day when there were no wars, no conflicts, no fighting or arguments. We all have fallings out with friends and family. How wonderful it would be if none of us had any grumbles with each other on 21st September.

Special prompt

The prompt for this week is:

Who will you make peace with?

  • You can be yourself and write about friends and family
  • You could think about it from the point of view of a world leader
  • You could be a fighter in an area where there is conflict
  • You could be a child in a war torn country.

You will have your own ideas I know. Do make sure you visit the Peace One Day website for ideas of what you can do on 21st September. You can also send them details of what you get up to.

Thanks go to 5th Class at St Joseph’s School in Kinvara, Ireland for their suggestion of this prompt.

The form will close on 24th September
