Greet ten people for peace!


21 November 2007 is the 35th annual World Hello Day. Anyone can participate by greeting ten people. This demonstrates the importance of personal communication for preserving peace.

World Hello Day begun in response to the conflict between Egypt and Israel in the Autumn of 1973. Since then, World Hello Day has been observed by people in 180 countries.

People around the world use the occasion of World Hello Day as an opportunity to express their concern for world peace. Beginning with a simple greeting on World Hello Day, their activities hopefully send a message to leaders, encouraging them to use communication rather than force to settle conflicts.

As a global event World Hello Day joins local participation in a global expression of peace. The World Hello Day web site address is http://www.worldhelloday.org/

A big HELLO goes out to all of you on this very special day!

This sounds like a good idea. If I have a few minutes before work, I might send out ten emails to people who are floating around my email address book. Hello and peace to you too! Does that count?

Of course it counts, and a brilliant idea it is too! I may just do the same :-)
