More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that, my friends, is why we have the United Nations.
Picture a world void of the United Nations (UN); a global community possibly characterised by heightened international conflict, chaos and turmoil. Without the intervention of the United Nations, one might argue that the principles of Freedom, Human Rights, Democracy and Justice, might be perceived as less significant over the individualistic ideologies of many.
Founded in 1945, post-World War II, the UN has worked continuously towards defending and protecting the sovereignty of all nations, large and small. Instigated in 1948, 24th October was then declared the anniversary of the founding of UN's charter and remains to be known as United Nations Day.
