Catch a Wave for Peace

September 21 is International Peace Day, and a time to reflect on all of the blessings we have. This is an annual day dedicated to peace, or the absence of war, such as might be demonstrated by a temporary ceasefire during combat. It’s observed by many nations, political and military groups, and people around the world. To begin the day, the “Peace Bell” is rung at UN Headquarters. The Peace bell is cast from coins donated by children from all around the world. It was given as a gift to the UN by Japan, and is referred to as “a reminder of the human cost of war.” The Peace bell is inscribed with the words: “Long live absolute world peace.”

It’s a privilege to surf, and every wave that we ride is a gift. If you agree, ride a wave for peace, and if you’re not near the coast, do something meaningful that you enjoy to celebrate peace. September 21 also marks Equinox, in our continent Fall, when we look forward to cooler temperatures and more westerly swells.

Thank you to our friend Peggy, for reminding us of this favorite song by John Lennon, Imagine. We hope for peace every day in the entire world for all living things. Enjoy!

Love and Aloha, Cher and Steve
