19 August - 2010 World Humanitarian Day



19 August is World Humanitarian Day. The date was selected because on that day in 2003 a truck bomb was detonated beside the UN mission HQ in Baghdad, killing 22 people and leaving many more wounded.

This is what I study. This is what I do. The world is my country and this is my community. And, damn, was I excited to see they included social workers in this amazing group.
Peace/سلام

Excellent. This video really gave me goose bumps. "We don"t carry guns; we don't take sides..." That's the kind of folks I want to hang out with. Thank you for sharing.
