November 21st World Hello Day

In 1973, during a war between Israel and Egypt, Brian and Michael McCormick decided to create a day where people simply said hello to each other. Total strangers greeting each other by saying hello in whatever language they spoke. “Greet ten people for peace”. If we all spend time saying “hello” to each other, being civil and kind, maybe we won’t fight as much or find reasons to hate each other when we really have no reason for hating at all. It’s a nice idea and it might work if everyone took it seriously. To greet someone is to open yourself up to the world others live in even if it’s just for a moment and peace is what lives in your heart.

How to celebrate – Say “hello” to at least ten people. Learn to say hello in ten different languages. Try and make the world a better place today.
