                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
Expressing the sense of Congress that a day of peace and sharing should 
             be established at the beginning of each year.

Whereas human progress in the 21st century will depend upon global understanding 
        and cooperation in finding positive solutions to hunger and violence;
Whereas the turn of the millennium offers unparalleled opportunity for humanity 
        to examine its past, set goals for the future, and establish new 
        patterns of behavior;
Whereas the people of the United States and the world observed the day 
        designated by the United Nations General Assembly as ``One Day in Peace, 
        January 1, 2000'' (General Assembly Resolution 54/29);
Whereas the example set on that day ought to be recognized globally and repeated 
        each year;
Whereas the people of the United States seek to establish better relations with 
        one another and with the people of all countries; and
Whereas celebration by the breaking of bread together traditionally has been the 
        means by which individuals, societies, and nations join together in 
        peace: Now, therefore, be it
    Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring), 
That it is the sense of Congress that--
            (1) each year should begin with a day of peace and sharing 
        during which--
                    (A) people around the world should gather with 
                family, friends, neighbors, their faith community, or 
                people of another culture to pledge nonviolence in the 
                new year and to share in a celebratory new year meal; 
                and
                    (B) Americans who are able should match or multiply 
                the cost of their new year meal with a timely gift to 
                the hungry at home or abroad in a tangible 
                demonstration of a desire for increased friendship and 
                sharing among people around the world; and
            (2) the President should issue a proclamation each year 
        calling on the people of the United States and interested 
        organizations to observe such a day with appropriate programs 
        and activities.
                                 <all>
