to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and
to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and
to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and
to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,
AND FOR THESE ENDS
to practice tolerance and live together in peace with one another as good neighbours, and
to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security, and
to ensure, by the acceptance of principles and the institution of methods, that armed force shall not be used, save in the common interest, and
to employ international machinery for the promotion of the economic and social advancement of all peoples,
HAVE RESOLVED TO COMBINE OUR EFFORTS TO ACCOMPLISH THESE AIMS
Accordingly, our respective Governments, through representatives assembled in the city of San Francisco, who have exhibited their full powers found to be in good and due form, have agreed to the present Charter of the United Nations and do hereby establish an international organization to be known as the United Nations.
How do you read?
You’re feelings are really really important.
Isn’titbeautiful? This charter is really beautiful. But the reality is?
I want to ask you first. Did you know UN has that purpose?
I want to ask people who work in UN. Did you know UN has that purpose?
I want to ask people who lead UN. Did you know UN has that purpose?
Is it a hollow crys? Is it Only remains through words?
Would ‘PEACE’ touch your mind?
If you had seen a war, you must long forpeace.
If you are a victim, you must long for peace.
If your people has died, you must long for peace.
We need to press on a little bit more.
