About - Reconciliation Day
International Reconciliation Day is the brain child of Vincent Coyle who is a Irish Civil and Human Rights Advocate that had full support of Kofi Annan and John Hume and Senetor David Norris of the Irish Senate where all the issues where debated before it was brought it forward to the United Nations and ratified. The first ever year of International Day of Reconciliation was 2009 which was marked by a massive number of white doves being distributed and the ringing of the peace bell, after a formal presentation at the United Nations. Reconciliation Day is held on the last Saturday of April every year and is supported by 193 countries worldwide.
This is a day intended to patch up relationships. If you have amends to make with others and re-establish relationships between loved ones that, for some reason, have been broken, then it is the time to try to do so. It is never to late, life is short so make a fresh start with those relationships. Once you do that its then time to help people in your community, country and imprace others around the world with the message of reconciliation. This is a day not to be taking lightly as there are conflict and war in countrys which ultimatly destroy peoples lifes and peace. These people can be helped with support of other countrys with taking reguees and helping them build a new life until reconciliation can be reached in there own country and the war ends, they can return to their country and live in peace.
