Say Hello for Peace

Hello!!! Most common word used to attend calls and to begin conversation. But there is another valuable meaning attached to this word. By greeting others, the message is used for communication to settle conflicts. World Hello Day has been observed by people in 180 countries.

This event was begun in 1973 in response to the conflict between Egypt and Israel. Since then, people around the world use the occasion of World Hello Day as an opportunity to express their concern for world peace.

But where did it start from? Who is the person behind this day? World Hello Day was created by Brian McCormack, a Ph.D. graduate of Arizona State University, and Michael McCormack, a graduate of Harvard University. They continue to promote this global event.

Anyone can participate in World Hello Day simply by greeting ten people. But why do one need to restrict saying hello to only ten people who they speak with on a regular basis? It can also be a starter to speak with who you don’t usually speak with. This celebration need not stop with November. Ask people who speak another language to teach you how to say "hello" "peace" or "welcome." This is to foster appreciation of world languages and cultures and builds positive self esteem.

In this age of mass communication methods, the world itself has become a global village where boundaries merge and distances diminish.
