Celebrating a birthday gives honor to the celebrant as well as to those marking the occasion. On October 24th all countries are invited to celebrate the birthday of the United Nations for on this day in 1945 the UN Charter was adopted. “Let us reaffirm our commitment to the marginalized and vulnerable and work in common cause for the common good,” said General Secretary Ban Ki-moon in his address marking this day. The United Nations helps countries and people throughout the world in numerous ways, as this video chronicles. On this day we give special thanks to Sister Kathleen Ries who keeps us informed about what is happening at the United Nations.
