To the editor:
United Nations Day, Oct. 24, will be celebrated worldwide because almost every country in the world is a member of the United Nations. Our blue and white United Nations flag should be flown throughout the entire year.
Since the United Nations is our best hope for world peace, we should support it and learn all about it. In the last two weeks of October, grade school, high school and college social studies teachers should make learning about the United Nations a class project.
Recently, United Nations forces were important in restoring peace between Israel and Lebanon. The genocide-suffering people of Sudan can be saved by United Nations forces. United Nations forces should be used to keep peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.
On a prominent wall at the United Nations in New York City is Isaiah 2:4:
"They shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nations shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore."
For peace, celebrate United Nations Day on Oct. 24.
