Happy International Day of Peace


Tuesday, 21 September (United Nations) 2021



Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, through observing 24 hours of non-violence and cease-fire.


My book en.light.en.ment is largely about striving for peace, I have many essays on the subject:  PEACE, NON PEACE, PACIFISTS, PACIFISM


“Peace Train” – Yusuf / Cat Stevens’ timeless anthem of hope and unity – was originally released on the classic album 'Teaser and the Firecat' in 1971 and was Stevens’ first US Top 10 hit.

Peace Train

Cat Stevens


Now I've been happy lately

Thinking about the good things to come

And I believe it could be

Something good has begun

Oh, I've been smiling lately

Dreaming about the world as one

And I believe it could be

Someday it's going to come


'Cause I'm on the edge of darkness

There ride the Peace Train

Oh, Peace Train take this country

Come take me home again


Now I've been smiling lately,

Thinkin' about the good things to come

And I believe it could be,

Something good has begun


Oh Peace Train sounding louder

Glide on the Peace Train

Come on now Peace Train

Yes, Peace Train holy roller


Everyone jump upon the Peace Train

Come on now, Peace Train


Get your bags together,

Go bring your good friends, too

'Cause it's getting nearer,

It soon will be with you


Now come and join the living,

It's not so far from you

And it's getting nearer,

Soon it will all be true


Oh Peace Train sounding louder

Glide on the Peace Train

Come on now Peace Train

Peace Train


Now I've been crying lately,

Thinkin' about the world as it is

Why must we go on hating,

Why can't we live in bliss


'Cause out on the edge of darkness,

There rides a Peace Train

Oh Peace Train take this country,

Come take me home again


Oh Peace Train sounding louder

Glide on the Peace Train

Come on now, Peace Train

Yes, Peace Train holy roller


Everyone jump upon the Peace Train

Come on, come on, come on

Yes, come on, peace train

Yes, it's the peace train


Come on now, peace train

Oh, peace train


Songwriter: Cat Stevens / Yusuf Islam
