Seeking common solutions on U.N. Day
Oct. 24 is United Nations Day, the anniversary of the founding of the United Nations. United Nations Day was established to promote awareness of the interdependence of the world's nations and the need to find common solutions to the complex problems facing mankind, including human rights, population growth, environmental degradation, food supply and distribution, energy, nuclear proliferation and the maintenance of peace. The Baha'i Communities of Juneau, Douglas and Tee Harbor would like to call attention to this significant date and focus hearts and minds on the need to find global solutions to the world's problems.
