In 1947, the United Nations General Assembly declared 24 October, the anniversary of the Charter of the United Nations, as which “shall be devoted to making known to the peoples of the world the aims and achievements of the United Nations and to gaining their support for” its work.
In 1971 the United Nations General Assembly adopted a further resolution (United Nations Resolution 2782) declaring that United Nations Day shall be an international holiday and recommended that it should be observed as a public holiday by all United Nations member states.
United Nations Day is devoted to making known to peoples of the world the aims and achievements of the United Nations Organization. United Nations Day is part of United Nations Week, which runs from 20 to 26 October. [WIKIPEDIA]

Lobotomy, the solution to Mitt Romney’s Lying
Mitt, God does not like your campaign of lies!
Swords Into Plowshares
The United Nations garden contains several sculptures and statues that have been donated by different countries. This one is called “Let Us Beat Swords into Plowshares” and was a gift from the then Soviet Union presented in 1959. Made by Evgeniy Vuchetich, the bronze statue represents the figure of a man holding a hammer in one hand and, in the other, a sword which he is making into a plowshare, symbolizing man’s desire to put an end to war and convert the means of destruction into creative tools for the benefit of all mankind.

Are you tired of the sound of sonic booms? You do know what they are, don’t you? It’s the sound of Mitt Romney FLIP FLOPPING, changing what little mind he may have, on this issue and that issue. Sunday, he was pro-Obamacare. Monday he denounced it. Yesterday, Mitt revamped his campaign and, guess what: He for Obamacare…again! Is he also pro-gay, pro-releasing tax returns, anti-Mitch McConnell or pro raising taxes on the rich? Bring me the head of the real Mitt Romney! Once we joked about Mitt Romney’s willingness to say anything to get elected: It just depends on the news weather vane. We asked why a man, who has no core, would think he could be elected president? What have his advisers been telling him these last seven years? Should we blame them for MITT ROMNEY DANCING WITH THE DEVIL? —G.O.W.
