Today is United Nations Day.
I know lots of folks can't stand the UN.
I know it is political.
I know it is full of powerful men,
playing powerful men's games
(or women as it were).
But most folks who feel so strongly about it
haven't even been there.
But I have.
And this is what I think.
Mr. Fun has a saying from work:
We use it here at home now. Makes the Girl crazy.
What it means is if you have a problem with something,
propose a solution.
I like the United Nations because the theory makes me happy.
People proposing solutions.
It's that simple.
This is what peace looks like here.
A lot of talking. Taking turns talking.
But I oppose oppression.
I like the proposal
that there is an organization
giving voice to the voiceless.
Helping them without power.
Happy United Nations Day.
