United Nations Day: One World United

Peace on Earth—every beauty queen’s dream.   The United Nations is working steadily to ensure that this happens.  In place of the League of Nations, the UN was established on 24 October 1945 after World War II.

Objectives of the United Nations

  • maintaining peace between nations
  • promoting human rights
  • fostering social and economic development
  • protecting the environment
  • providing humanitarian aid

What Does a World United Look Like?

Image result for one world unitedNo war.  Strong economies.  Peaceful international trade agreements. I believe we have come a long way since WWII.  Yes, there is still war and countries that struggle, but we have started taking baby steps toward accepting other cultures and embracing diversity.  Think about the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea and what happened with the subsequent events afterward.  North Korea and South Korea have been at war for ages.  They had not sat down and “officially” talked in more than two years, up until the Winter Olympics.  Since then, more and more cameras have been pointed toward North Korea and more “talks” have been held.

Humanity still has a long way to go, but we are making strides, breaking down boundaries, and actively changing our future.  I don’t think I will be able to see a world united in my lifetime, but maybe my kids or my grandkids will.

And just because I thought it was hilarious, here is a parody from KPOP singer Sungri

Other than being an awesome mom and a devoted wife, Cynthia is an avid explorer traveling through the galaxy of her mind meeting new and interesting people along the way.  Her destination is unknown, but the fun is in the journey.

Cynthia’s first exploration took her to the world of Sanctoria, a place full of magic and mystery.  After falling in love and leading an army to war, Cynthia left Sanctoria and continued on her journey.

Currently, Cynthia resides in one of the Revenant cities on Earth.  What mysteries will the city hold and where will Cynthia end up?  Who knows?  But you can guarantee that Cynthia will tell us all about it in The Curse of Judas (Book 1 of the Revenant City Series).  Check out a preview of the first two chapters for free.
