Peace One DayBook - 2005
Hoping to make a difference and help to bring calm in a troubled world, Gilley wrote to the United Nations to discuss an idea for a day when the entire globe would observe peace. Aided by his family, colleagues and friends, he wrote to presidents and prime ministers, Nobel Prize winners and religious leaders for help. After struggling for over two years, his realisation came true: the United Nations voted to name September 21 a day of cease-fire and nonviolence. He named it Peace One Day.
