Since the world began, human beings have had a desire for peace. On this day people and nations around the world celebrate a time with no war or violence. Depending on the time and place, this celebration could come in the form of a cease fire or truce, or something hoped for in the future that is not the current situation. Peaceful nations often have a higher standard of living and better quality of life for its citizens. Currently Iceland enjoys the status of the worlds most peaceful country according the the Global Peace Index that has been keeping track of such things such as falling homicide rates, and the number of conflicts the country is engaged in around the world. The word Peace often conjures up images of the famed "Peace Sign" that was created by Gerald Holtom as an emblem for nuclear disarmament.
