60 Seconds for Peace

Craig Hamilton suggested that "60 Seconds for Peace" should be a GCP global event. The event was promoted by internet and word of mouth, scheduled for Saturday 27 December 2003 at 21:00:00 UTC (GMT). The website BillionforPeace.org had information to find the exact time in locations around the world. Here is the description from the website:

What is "60 Seconds for Peace"?

The idea is simple: "We the People" of the world are establishing a 60-second pause for peace in as many communities as possible across the globe... all on the same day, all at the same time. Sixty seconds of silence to Think, Reflect, Pray or Meditate on Peace.

Our vision is simple: At precisely the same moment on 27/28 December 2003, at least one billion people will pause to think about peace. Every place of business or commerce will pause for 60 seconds. Every radio and television station will pause for 60 seconds. Every person in motion will pause for 60 seconds.

And think about peace.

We set a formal prediction based on the standard meanshift analysis for the period from 21:00:00 to 21:00:59, GMT. The result shows a positive trend, with Chisquare of 73.977 on 60 df, for p = 0.106.
