What if there was one day when, for 24 hours, the world stopped killing? Is the idea of lasting world peace one day an impossible dream? Not for young Londoner, former sci-fi actor and filmmaker Jeremy Gilley. In 1998 he decided to get national leaders to commit to a cessation of hostilities for at least one designated day each year. He discovered that there already was an international "Peace Day" but its date was not fixed and very few knew of its existence. Its observance was ignored.
