Celebrate United Nations Day October 24


“We will be judged in the future on the actions we take today – on results. On this United Nations Day, let us rededicate ourselves to achieving them.”
- Ban Ki-moon, UN Secretary-General (You betcha Bannie!)

A blessed and joyous United Nations Day to peace-lovers and justice-seekers the world over. We invite you to celebrate this momentous occasion by reading some of the following selections and then signing this letter thanking United Nations Peacekeepers for all they do. (With a special message from George Clooney. ME-OW!)

Cheers,

Charlie

I await the day Obama is sworn in and the UN flag flies high above The White House. (with dread.)

Heard you on the radio a few months ago, one smart parrot.
