1000 Flowers for the Planet - #478 Observe Harmony Day
Today is Harmony Day, which began in Australia in 1999, and is celebrated by people coming together and participating in local activities. The continuing message of Harmony Day is 'Everyone Belongs'. It is about community participation, inclusiveness, celebrating diversity, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone. Australia is a country of huge multi-ethnic diversity, so Harmony Day is a great way to get together and learn more about each other’s culture. The sentiments of Harmony Day should not stay within Australia, but be encouraged all around the world. If we did that, we might get along a lot better, and that would make a fantastic world.
