ZONTIANS all over the world celebrated the United Nations (UN) Day. The UN thrusts on the protection, education and advancement of children and women have engaged the long-term projects of the academe and socio-civic groups.
My immersion with the UN started as early as in my elementary years in Biñan, Laguna. We were taught to sing the “UN song,” and competed to win the UN trophy.
In high school in Maryknoll College and college at the University of Sto. Tomas, we had oratorical and essay writing contests about the United Nations. As years passed, the United Nations has touched the lives of teachers and students. And now, Zontians all over the globe have a higher level of integrating the UN thrusts in their projects, especially those which uplift the underprivileged.
