The proclamation of 100 Days of Peace to surround the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games is underway. Events began with an all-night Peace Vigil at St Martin-in-the-Fields, Trafalgar Square, in the centre of London on 8/9 June 2012. Hundreds of people came to pray for peace. Sikhs, Buddhists and Muslims joined Christians of all denominations to reflect on the great need of the world for peace. The final hour was attended by the Archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols, and the Bishop of London, Richard Chartres. Everyone is now asking 'What can we do to make the Olympic Truce a reality?'
