I WANT TO SHOUT OUT A BIG ‘HELLO’ TO YOU
November 21, 2012 is the 40th annual World Hello Day. Anyone can participate in World Hello Day simply by greeting ten people. This demonstrates the importance of personal communication for preserving peace.
World Hello Day was begun in response to the conflict between Egypt and Israel in the Fall of 1973. Since then, World Hello Day has been observed by people in 180 countries.
People around the world use the occasion of World Hello Day as an opportunity to express their concern for world peace. Beginning with a simple greeting on World Hello Day, their activities send a message to leaders, encouraging them to use communication rather than force to settle conflicts.
As a global event World Hello Day joins local participation in a global expression of peace. The World Hello Day web site address is http://www.worldhelloday.org.
31 winners of the Nobel Peace Prize are among the people who have realized World Hello Day’s value as an instrument for preserving peace and as an occasion that makes it possible for anyone in the world to contribute to the process of creating peace.
Brian McCormack, a Ph.D. graduate of Arizona State University, and Michael McCormack, a graduate of Harvard University, work together to promote this annual global event.
While I was at the GYM this morning I was watching the news. “World Hello Day” is today! How many times do you say “Hello” to someone and they don’t answer or look at you with a blank stare? I try to say “Hello” to others as I pass by and although they often don’t answer back that is okay too.
Who knows what is going on in their lives and I don’t walk in their shoes. Just the same we live in such a busy, hectic world and not to mention the craziness of all the technology out there nowadays. It seems people walk down the street texting.
Does anyone talk to each other anymore?
On that note, I am saying “Hello” to YOU and wishing YOU a spectacular day.
Some people come in your life as blessings.
Some come in your life as lessons.~Mother Teresa~
Don’t put the key to your happiness in someone else’s pocket.
