In 1997, a Miami native named Don Morris began a grass roots “holiday”, one which would garner cultural acclaim. Although not an official holiday, World Peace Day, celebrated on November 17, is recognized around the world as a day set aside to celebrate all things peaceful. It has no logo, no rallying cry and no federal recognition. But what World Peace Day does have is a heart for kindness.
Don Morris asked that we celebrate World Peace Day in three ways:
- Drive with your headlights on all day as a symbol of the hope for peace
- Pray for (or meditate on) global peace
- Just be nice to one another
While affecting world peace efforts may not be a reality for most; Morris (known as “Peaceguy”) is convinced that if we all – in our own little corner of the world – sought peace in our own relationships and situations, the effect would be contagious. Mission Viejo Florist would like to provide some inspiration as to how to spread peace through floral bouquets.
This stunning orchid display simply exudes peace. Send it to someone who needs a break from a busy lifestyle, or send as a peace offering to someone who needs to hear that you are sorry. Our Touch of Tranquility bouquet says it all, both in its name and its bright, cheery aura.
Green plants will enhance any room by adding serenity and calm; and are proven to encourage increased productivity in both dorm room and office. Is there anyone with a stressful schedule that you could send some peace to? Whatever the reason, and whichever floral arrangement you choose, sending flowers is a touching was to celebrate World Peace Day. Remember, on November 17 – in Mission Viejo or wherever you find yourself – spread the joy and kindness, and make a difference for someone special.
