September 21 is United Nations International Day of Peace. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says, "Peace is my main job. Peace doesn’t just happen – it must be nurtured, maintained and defended. I work for peace in many different ways: I mediate between antagonists, urging them to resolve their differences peacefully; I promote tolerance and harmonious relations among countries and peoples; I campaign to stem the tide of deadly disease; and I press for the elimination of extreme poverty, and for a natural environment that can sustain not only this generation, but those to come.
There are many tools in the peacemaker’s kit – diplomacy and human rights; development and disarmament; peacekeeping and peacebuilding – and I use them every single day.
