In 1981, the United Nations proclaimed the International Day of Peace.
Sept. 21 is observed around the world as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.
This year the theme for the International Day of Peace is “The Right to Peace.”
On Friday, the Peace Action Group will commemorate this day with an informal gathering from 4 to 5 p.m. at the Peace Pole on the Rock Falls Riverfront.
All are invited to come to share ideas of peace.
