Today, PFS honours and celebrates United Nations International Day of Peace.  In 1981 the United Nations General Assembly passed resolution 36/67 declaring an International Day of Peace. In 2001, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a new resolution 55/282 declaring 21 September of each year as the International Day of Peace. The intention of the resolution is to have the entire world observe a day of peace and nonviolence. 

UN GA Resolution 55/282 

"Declares that the International Dayof Peace shall henceforth be observed as a day of global ceasefire and non-violence," and invites "all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities for the duration of the Day."
