The UN's theme for the International Day of Peace in 2008 was "Human Rights and Peacekeeping." Lasting peace is secured not merely through laws, backed by the power of government enforcement, but by a rising awareness of our universal solidarity as one human family, brothers and sisters who share a common spiritual and moral heritage. By fostering a culture of service, guided by an ethic of living for the sake of others, we contribute to building a world of lasting peace.
