DYK: September 21st is the International Day of Peace? The day is a UN holiday dedicated to ending war and violence.  September is also World Suicide Prevention Month. Coincidence? Maybe. TAB member Hajra suggested MissHeard do a peace theme, and we think it’s a great idea!

This month, let’s talk about PEACE.

Want to share, but aren’t sure where to start? Here are some ideas and questions to spark inspiration!

  • Do you think world peace is possible? Why or why not?
  • What is a current obstacle to world peace?
  • How can we make our communities/schools/families more peaceful?
  • What does ‘inner peace’ mean to you?
  • How can we prevent suicide?
  • Why is suicide prevention so important?
  • Feature a youth-led peace-building movement
  • Interview or feature a youth leader
  • Share a bit about a peace/anti-war activist from history
  • Make a playlist
  • Analyze a TV show, movie, or other piece of pop culture
  • Something else entirely! The sky’s the limit- we love to hear and share all kinds of ideas.

We invite you to share articles, interviews, listicles, personal essays, art, poetry, photography, playlists, music- whatever format helps you share your thoughts.

Please send your submission, along with a short, 1-2 sentence bio, and a photo (optional) to hello at missheardmedia dot com! You can also use the CONTACT tab.
