Received one of these in some change yesterday..

International Year of Peace

The General Assembly,

Recalling its resolutions 37/16 of 16 November 1982, 38/56 of 7 December 1983, 39/10 of 8 November 1984, 40/3 of 24 October 1985 and 40/10 of 11 November 1985 on the International Year of Peace,

Recalling further that, by its resolution 40/3, the General Assembly solemnly proclaimed the year 1986 the International Year of Peace, which constituted a meaningful event in the celebration of the fortieth anniversary of the United Nations,

Appreciating that the promotion of peace is the basic objective of the United Nations, and that its attainment is the common ideal of all the peoples of the world....

"Respect for all people is essential to peace, and as we agreed in Geneva, progress in resolving humanitarian issues in a spirit of cooperation" - Reagan
"Our duty to all human kind is to offer it a safe prospect of peace, a prospect of entering the third millenium without fear" - Gorbachev

The world was in just as much turmoil 23 years ago, what with the US hostages in Teheran, the Soviet invasion in Afghanistan, and Reagan vs Carter in the Presidential race. 1980 was a most nerveracking year!

Need to make a bit of a change here. 1986 to 2003 is 17 years, not 23 - guess you can see why I need to regularly check my change!

Sorry for any confusion. Embarrassed
