Thomas A Kempis

First, keep the peace within yourself, then you can also bring peace to others.

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others,
even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.

Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be careful.
Strive to be happy. Max Ehrmann

(September 26, 1872 – September 9, 1945), American writer, poet, and attorney from Terre Haute, Indiana

What is The Flagstaff Peace Day Celebration?

The original organizers for the Flagstaff Peace Day Celebration first convened in December of 2013 in an effort to support the International Peace Day Celebration initiative created by the United Nations in September of 2001. Other peacemakers and community members of Flagstaff joined shortly thereafter in the effort to promote peace throughout Northern Arizona with financial donations, donations of time and talent, as well as sharing community activities and information to encourage respect, tolerance, and understanding of each other regardless of our differences.
