In the light of the egregious invasion of Ukraine — as well as the mistreatment of human beings throughout the world — what is the true ethical responsibility of mankind, particularly with regard to the United Nations? Is not the abuse of any single human being — or any animal, plant or tree — the universal responsibility of all? The United Nations was founded upon right principles, but with a very weak charter which — to this day — does not give the world body sufficient authority to stop nations from unfair and destructive actions against either other nations or their own citizens. Perhaps we need a new United Nations with the power — and universally respected authority — to override the unethical behavior of any nation, group or individual intent on destabilizing the peace of the world, a peace which is our inherent right as eternal children of God. Let us pray that true wisdom may prevail, and that lasting peace may be our inviolable heritage!
