You might be heartily sick of some family and friends by now, but, if you are lucky, you know they care. Imagine going through this pandemic without family and friends? Yikes!
That’s friendship on a very personal level, but there’s friendship on the global scale, and that’s what the International Day of Friendship is all about. Celebrated on July 30, this UN initiative encourages the culture of peace as a set of values, attitudes and behaviors that reject violence, with the goal to prevent conflicts by addressing their root causes.
