UN Turns 63

Back in the Philippines, every school celebrates United Nation's Day. During the entire month of October, students would make flags of the different nations and you could see the flags hung up everywhere. Schools get busy preparing for a presentation in celebrating this worldwide event. Most of the school have nation's costume parade. I love this event. Very colorful and artistic.

The United Nations established in 1945 in the aftermath of history’s most devastating war with the foremost objective of maintaining international peace and security completes 63 years of existence today. The 63rd anniversary of the organisation that now brings together 192 nations under its umbrella comes at a time when the world is going through a worsening financial crisis in addition to escalation of fuel and food prices.
