We believe in the United Nations up to a point. It has done some good, but overall its record to unite nations in efforts for a peaceful world, and to protect human rights, is a mixed bag. At times it has been downright timid in its actions. 

To begin with, we recognize to unite nations of different heritages, religious beliefs, cultures and ways of life is a huge task, particularly with the evil in the world. However, it’s not as tough as it once was.  With the effectiveness and advances in technology, the travel exchanges, the world has become smaller. Peoples of many nations have reached out to each other, such as the Sister City programs, student exchanges, and to put it simply, we know each other better today. But evil men control many nations, people are suffering and the United Nations isn’t doing enough to help people who are denied freedoms and who live in substandard conditions, lacking even the minor quality of life benefits other countries have.
