United Nations Day

???????????????????????????????Today is United Nations Day.

Go to the main page and you will see the following:

“This year again, we saw the United Nations come together on armed conflict, human rights, the environment and many other issues. We continue to show what collective action can do.  We can do even more.  In a world that is more connected, we must be more united. On United Nations Day, let us pledge to live up to our founding ideals and work together for peace, development and human rights. ”

~ Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

This has been the celebrated for 65 years.

What comes to mind when you think of  the United Nations?

Leo Tolstoy
