Building a Peace Bridge – by Annette Rochelle Aben

Let’s come together to set the intention of peace for the new year. Let’s build a peace bridge! We can do this. In fact, millions of others have been doing this sine 1995 for an entire hour. Not just any hour, but the hour that bridges the old year and the new year together. 11:30pm on December 31st through 12:30am January 1st is considered the Universal Hour of Peace.

There may be those with whom you are already sharing the vision of a peace-filled world. If you have never though of this as an alternative way to ring in the new year, consider it this year. Maybe forgo the cocktails and glitter for a group meditation or engage others in harmonious reflection of peace. Include the children, grandparents, neighbors and friends.

Be sure to use the hastag, #UniversalHourOfPeace in your social media posts.
