Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.
–Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi
Today is Peace Day. Celebrated every first Tuesday of March each year, it is a day to sow love and kindness rather than hate and conflict. It was Bob Marley who said, ” We should really love each other in peace and harmony, instead we’re fussin’ n fighting like we ain’t supposed to be “.
Every day should be a day where we seek to live good with one another. Here are five facts about Peace Day. Also check out our #PeaceJamaica playlist.
