A symbol of hope for global unity
United Nations Day, on 24 October, marks the anniversary of the day in 1945 when the UN Charter entered into force. UN Day, celebrated every year, offers the opportunity to amplify our common agenda and reaffirm the purposes and principles of the UN Charter that have guided us for the past 76 years."
The FCNL, Friends Committee on National Legislation, said of International Peace day earlier this month, "Today is not a day for despair or frustration. It is a day to recommit to the work of peace and to hope for the future." I hope the UN finds a way to keep doing it and doing it better.
