Submitted by Chella on: October 24, 2012 I hope the UN will coordinate with the Peace One Day effort towards an annual global truce day, where everybody on earth will lay down their weapons for one day - and we'll go on from there. If people want to hand over their weapons permanently, we may need some help with that from the UN. so I hope that the various peace organizations on earth begin to come together to push these changes through power.
