I rushed to Bonn city center this morning when I remembered that a United Nations Day event is to be held there. I spotted a poster somewhere in the city a few days ago that there will be a celebration of some sort. I googled for a programme of the activities before I headed downtown and decided it was worth checking out.
In Bonn, the mood was festive. Tents were put up to house different UN and development organizations. Old folks danced to the groove of live bands and children enjoyed the giveaways and activities. But at least for once as a global way of celebrating the day, UN Day should be a ceasefire day for all the wars in the world. It is of related reason that UN was created after World War II.
