More than a half century after Korean peninsula was divided into two parts, North are South Korea finally agreed to set their differences apart and unite into one strong Korea. Such decision signed by North Korean leader Kim Jong Il and South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun was backed up by the United Nations General Assembly. This comes exactly one month after the International Day of Non-Violence, which is a new holiday. In June this year, United Nations General Assembly voted to establish October 2 as the International Day of Non-Violence. The date for this holiday was chosen on purpose - October 2 is the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, an Indian leader who spent his life fighting for civil rights, peace and non-violance.

This contest is fueled by the following news: Peace is an era in the history of any government, or combined states, signified with the absence of open war conflicts between the people, living in a distinguished territory and other people.
Peace is based on the external civil politics between the states, considering the public interests of each side, and also on the agreements or other documents concluded between the sides.
Frequently peace is interrupted by war.
According to R. Jackson, after the year 1945 there were only 26 peaceful days on the planet.
The intention of war is for peace, which would have been better before war.
Peace-time, preceding war, usually is characterized by the preparation for the forthcoming military collision. The manufacture of armaments starts at a fast rate; the allotment of big funds is observed which are transferred from the treasury of the government to the military needs. The moral preparation of the public to face any attacks is carried out.
Peace-time is preceded by a capitulation one of the sides, or mutual concessions from both sides.
Peace-time, followed by war is characterized by the natural strengthening of peace, restoration of demolitions, a quick temporary rise in the economy and big financial expenditures.
To save the peace in the territory of all the states on the whole planet combined unions are formed. An example for such a union is the United Nations Organization.
The Nobel Prize for peace every year (with rare exceptions in the years of the World Wars) is given to the people who have contributed for the peace and friendship of the people. Basically, the prize honors the fighters of militarism, founders or active participants of international organizations and rights advocates.
The dove of peace: Is a gesture, which received popularity at the end of the Second World War due to the activities of the World Peace Congress.
The first world peace congress was held in 1949 in Paris and Prague. The emblem for this congress was drawn by Pablo Picasso. On the emblem a white dove was pictured, carrying an olive branch within its beak.
There exists a tradition of releasing white doves.

* In 1917, Norway initiated the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Vladimir Lenin, with the wording "For the triumph of peace", as a reciprocal step for the "Decree on Peace", published in Soviet Russia, for projecting Russia in a separate order from World War I. The Nobel committee rejected the given proposal in connection with the late nomination after the deadline - February 1, 1918, but made the decision, saying that the committee would not oppose awarding the Nobel Peace Prize to V.I. Lenin, if the present Russian government establishes peace and tranquility in the country. However, due to Civil War, the prize was not awarded;
