INTERNATIONAL DAY OF PEACE, 2018 BY Dimeji-Ajayi Olamide

163

Some of the most priceless things in life such as love, laughter, clean air, peace, happiness e.t.c. cannot be touched, only experienced. Though they cannot be held physically, they are nonetheless of great importance.

The English dictionary in its bid to adequately capture the meaning of the word  defines PEACE as “a state of tranquility, quiet and harmony”, “a state free from oppressive and unpleasant thoughts and emotions”, “a state free of war, in particular war between different countries”.

Each year, the international day of peace is celebrated on the 21st of September.

The United Nations Member States in 2015 adopted the 17 Sustainable Development Goals because they understood that it would not be possible to build a peaceful world if steps were not taken to achieve economic and social development for all people everywhere, and ensure that their rights were protected.  The 17  Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) cut across issues such as poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, environment and social justice.

The 16th SDG involves the Promotion of a just, PEACEFUL and inclusive society. This places a focus on threats of international homicide, violence against children, human trafficking and sexual violence. These issues when tackled will promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development.

Peace as a concept goes beyond a lack of unrest. It extends to a state of Harmony (agreement or accord). Any nation interested in protecting its peace must ensure that harmony among its member states and citizens is fostered. For peace to exist in any form of human association; from families to the workplace, then harmony must be the goal.

Therefore, the international day of peace is not just any routine celebration the United Nations set, but is a day where nations without civil unrest should appreciate the priceless gift of peace. To the nations with unrest, the day  should serve as a reminder to foster peace and harmony amongst its citizens. The sacrifices of millions who paid the price for peace should also be acknowledged. They are the silent heroes who are worthy of acknowledgement, but who rarely receive due respect.

Hopefully by year 2030 in line with the SDG plan, peace for all nations of the world would have become a reality.
