Today 8th and tomorrow 9th of May is a time of Remembrance and Reconciliation for those who lost their lives during the Second World War. Do you know that the events of the Second World War brought about the establishment of the United Nations?
The United Nations is an international organization that focuses on promoting peace and co-operation. The United Nations was created in order to prevent other conflicts comparable to World War II.
How are we expected to mark this day?
All UN member states, organizations of the UN system, Non-governmental organizations and individuals are encouraged to observe either one or both of these days holding solemn ceremonies and other appropriate events aimed at honoring the memory of those who died during the war.
In Teen Africa Academy, we are observing this day by sharing this information with all teenagers which would sum up to their historical knowledge.
