UN Day and Bruce Kent, Tea Cosies and Kindnesses

24 Oct

It is UN Day today and we were privileged to have Bruce Kent, of CND and a veteran Peace campaigner, in Truro, to speak to us to mark the day. The world celebrates United Nations Day every October 24 to honour the interstate organisation promoting human rights, social progress, and world peace. … Founding the United Nations in 1945 right after the very tragic World War II meant a very important idea to be embedded in every nation – that is to achieve Peace.  This aim becomes more important with each day that goes by.

Later in Truro, I saw a new tea cosy in the bread shop.

This morning I came across my quotation book again and thought this one of William Wordsworth’s seemed right for today.

“The best portions of a good man’s life are his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness.”

    I am so embarrassed that the U.S. is turning its back on the alliances that have helped to promote peace and civil rights since the end of WWII. But what a fun tea cosy.
