Always Remembered. Never Forgotten.

At a time when "Love" is celebrated and

"Wedding Bells" should joyfully ring,

the heinous lawlessness of 'terrorism'

did boldly strike to bring unspeakable

grief and heavy sorrow to so many

now mourning Loved Ones lost - 

 never to enjoy the happiness

of so many precious tomorrows.  

The Family of Humanity Around the World condemns

the horrific "Crime Against Humanity" committed

by lawless, terrorists during a wedding in

Afghanistan on August 17, 2019

Might Justice Prevail to Lawfully assail

the perpetrators of terrorism

in every place Around the World.

School children at a United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees-run school at Al-Baqa'a in Palestine. 

"There are currently 1.8 billion young people between the

ages of 10 and 24 in the world. This is the largest

youth population ever. However, more than 

half of all children and adolescents aged 6-14

lack basic reading and maths skills,

despite the fact that the majority of them

are attending school. This global learning crisis

threatens to severely hamper progress towards the SDGs."

Indigenous Peoples Around the World!

Reminder & Warning to the World:

Whether in the U.S. or anywhere around the world, Humanity's homeland Earth was NEVER intended

as a habitation for lawless, heinous, hateful

"Crimes Against Humanity!"

Words cannot express the depth

of sorrow for those whose lives were

taken in the El Paso, TX mall shooting on

August 3, 2019.  Further grief and sadness is also

extended for the lives lost in the Dayton, OH mass

shooting which occurred on August 4, 2019. 

May all injured be embraced with healing -

both physically and spiritually.

UN Secretary-General's Statement on the Death of

President Beji Caid Essebsi of Tunisia 

29 November 1926 - 25 July 2019

"I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of President Beji Caid Essebsi of Tunisia, a pivotal figure in the history of Tunisia and the country’s independence. In recent years, he was instrumental in successfully steering the country through its historic and peaceful transition to democracy.
 
President Essebsi will be remembered for his bold determination to uphold democratic rule in Tunisia and to respect and promote the rights of its citizens, including his strong advocacy for women’s rights and equality. President Essebsi was a Tunisian pioneer, an Arab and African trailblazer, and a global leader. 
 
I convey the deepest condolences of the United Nations to the family of President Essebsi and to the people and Government of Tunisia."
