Today we will tell you today is national what day. If there is indeed a world day that is slowly making a place in the calendar, it is that of World Day of Life. In 2012, we are in the fifth edition. It dates back to 2008 and its origin is to be sought in Côte d’Ivoire.
World Day of Life October 30
On this occasion are organized different events all related to the defense and the promotion of the values of Life:
- Conferences on human rights, mental health, nutrition, road safety .
- Organization of a giant blood donation.
- Medical consultations and free medical care in more than 10 medical disciplines.
- Parade of the living, on the theme of the preservation of life, our most precious possession.
- Concerto of the Life with many local artists of all horizons.
It was set up by the local NGO “Friends of Life” and is now celebrated in several countries, including Côte d’Ivoire, Benin, France, Norway, Haiti and Hawaii -United.
With this day, the sense of history is reversed and it is the African countries that set an example. Let us express the hope that their “culture of life” will enable us to drive out the “culture of death” too often put forward in the so-called “advanced” countries.
The moment of acclamation
A global chain has been launched in recent years; it consists in organizing a world minute of acclamation around the world.
What is it about? Each 30th of October, at 13:00 GMT precisely, the whole humanity is called to observe 1 minute of acclamation in honor of the Life. And this vast movement gives free rein to many forms of expression according to local cultures. This moment has made its way and has already been observed up to Hawaii in the USA It allows everyone to realize that being alive is a privilege and that it is celebrated.
