Today: United Nations Day

Today is the Day of the United Nations. UN Day marks the anniversary of the entry into force in 1945 of the UN Charter. With the ratification of this founding document by the majority of its signatories, including the five permanent members of the Security Council, the United Nations officially came into being.

24 October has been celebrated as United Nations Day since 1948. In 1971, the United Nations General Assembly recommended that the day be observed by Member States as a public holiday.

To take part of this celebration all what they wanted is to share the following video message of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon:

I was confused: Where is the message? I can not hear what he is speaking.
But then I thought: Sometimes you don´t need a lot of words to explain (what at least everybody can see, knows or should know). You can read the message of Ban Ki-moon here.
