Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Monday November 21, 2016 is World Hello Day. "World Hello Day may sound extremely basic, as it encourages us to take the opportunity to simply greet people, and to recognize how important simple communication is in our daily lives. The story of how it came to be, however, is a long and interesting one. World Hello Day was first created in 1973 in order to show people, especially the people of the Middle East that conflicts can and should be resolved through communication, and not violence. The idea is that clear, honest communication breeds peace. In the 1970s, the conflict between Egypt and Israel was quite severe, and many people began to fear yet another huge war would end up coming of it. World Hello Day was in fact created as a direct response to the Yom Kippur War that had just finished in October of 1973, during which thousands of both soldiers and innocent civilians were killed. Some soldiers had also been tortured and flat out executed. The peace discussion at the end of the war was the first time that Arab and Israeli officials met for direct public discussion in 25 years. Over the last 42 years since its creation, World Hello Day has been celebrated in 180 countries, as citizens of each of these countries take advantage of this time to express their concerns for world peace. Participating in World Hello Day is quite simple: all you have to do is say hello to at least 10 people during that one day. This is supposed to send a message of openness and goodwill to others. It will always be worth the struggle to make the first move and extend your hand to them in a gesture of peace." ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year' . #fit #follow #like #celebrate #worldhelloday #twitter #tweet #buffer #tagsforlike #share #pop #blog #linkinbio #lpt #ig #insta #awesome #world #hello #peace #goodwill . @instagram @sharpharmade
