Peace One Day's Jeremy Gilley on Global Truce 2012

This whole journey began with such a simple idea: a day of peace. We all want a world without war, without conflict, without human suffering. A single day is a window of opportunity. On 21 September this year, Peace Day 2011, we begin the countdown towards Global Truce - the biggest call for peace the world has ever seen...What we want to tell individuals is that the power to change the world lies in their hands - I don't believe in cynicism, in apathy; it doesn't get you anywhere - cynicism kills potential and possibility.
