“UN calls for greater effort in closing gender gap”

The United Nations is calling for stronger efforts to close the gender gap in conflict resolution. During a debate at the Security Council on Monday, member states, the African Union and UN agencies agreed that women can help de-escalate the world’s conflicts, but not enough has been done to bring them on board.

WE’RE ALL HUMAN BEINGS: (POEM)

IN THIS WORLD, WE DO NOT OWN OR CONTROL, WE ALL ARE IN THIS WORLD TOGETHER, NO MATTER IF WE ARE HUMANS, PLANTS OR ANIMALS

LIKE POLLEN THAT IS EATEN OR SPREAD BY A COLONY OF BEES

LIKE BIRDS THAT USE TREES TO HOUSE THEMSELVES AND FEED AND SPREAD SEEDS THAT GROW INTO NEW TREES

WE AS HUMAN BEINGS MUST REALIZE WE SHARE THE SAME DESTINY, NO DIFFERENTLY DESPITE OUR MANY LANGUAGES, RELIGIONS, CULTURES AND NATIONALITIES, IN REALITY WE ARE OF THE SAME KIN, AND MUST WORK OUR GRIEVANCES OUT, LIKE A FAMILY, EVEN IF IT IS A DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY!image
