International Day of Friendship

Friendship was defined as sharing the human spirit, and can’t think of a more beautiful definition, despite the challenges we face by living on this planet with its division and crises such as poverty, violence and abuse which constantly threaten peace and development as obstacles to harmony among the people of the world. How to do that? By going to the very roots and promote and support all forms for human solidarity, the most basic being friendship. 

It is through friendship that we gather strong bonds and ties of trust, and can do our part in giving our positive contribution to the shifts that are needed for long last stability and the safety we all deserve, by using the driving force of that passion and apply it to improving our world together for our good and that of our friends. 

And this is so important that the UN General Assembly dedicated a day to that, celebrating friendship in its broader meaning, from individuals to countries all the way to the biosphere as an inspiration for bridge-building, and the accent here goes on youth, the future community leaders, promoting mutual understanding and respect for diversity. This is way it is encouraged to promote this day as time for dialogue between civilisations, solidarity, reconciliation and understanding.
