A week for united nations
Yesterday was the official United Nations Day, commemorating the day in which the United Nations Charter was formed on October 24, 1945. The entire week is devoted to festivities celebrating the United Nations, with tonight's concert sponsored by the Greek government and featuring the National Symphony of Greece.
The Evzones elite guard marked United Nations Day yesterday with a march by the Parthenon.
Personally, I'm not entirely sure the U.N. is something to be celebrated, but I suppose they've done some good here and there. Just not good enough.
