The United Nations: So Young Men Would Never Have to Face a War Again

My heart sizzled as I watched this short video. The United Nations (UN) was founded in 1945 by men and women who experienced the devastating effects of war first hand. Our generations (those born after then) have heard their stories and felt their pain. That pain lead to a desire for change and peace around the world, and their vision for peace and international cooperation lives on today.

In this video, American Wendy Sherman, the current Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs (State Department), shares her story and  the importance of multilateral diplomacy on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the signing of the United Nations Charter in San Francisco, California.
