The International Peace Day or World Peace Day is celebrated round the world on the 21st September of every year. This day was first recognized in 1981 and asked every country, military and people to cease fire for one day dedicated to the absence of war. This day is celebrated in many major cities by wearing a white dove to symbolize Peace.

As we celebrate this significant day which over the past three decades, let the world leaders reflect on the enormous challenges facing the world today. The most expensive cost of war is against women and children. Serious and compelling alternatives to war are scarcely considered in the aftermath of war or in discussions about war against countries.

Lord DholakiaVirendra Sharma MP, who was hosting the event in the House of Commons on February 4th, was in Primary School when he first knew Lord King who lived in the next village. 'As a party official when I was visiting the Midlands on party business I always stayed at their house. He would say 'stay overnight, have a good breakfast and leave in the morning'. If anyone came to him for advice he was always there to help. (Photo Link)

Rt. Hon. Tom Brake regretted that one often finds out much more about the good that someone has done at a Memorial Service when it is too late. 'The contact I had with Lord King was through the work he did with the Universal Peace Federation. That organisation tries to bring faiths together from all over the world and make them work together. This effort is a strong testament to his strength to bring people with different views together to find common sense solutions that benefit us all. He will be greatly missed in Parliament and in the central role that he performed at the Universal Peace Federation. I am sure that his legacy will continue in that multi-faith work and we will all benefit from it for years to come.'
