What makes you happiest? Is it a song?
Today is the International Day of Happiness and the United Nations wants us to celebrate with the songs that make you happiest.U-N Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said, “the song that makes me happiest is Signed Sealed Delivered by U-N Messenger of Peace, Stevie Wonder.”
Ki-Moon believes that music can join us together with more than happiness. “On this day we are using the universal language of music to show solidarity with billions of people around the world suffering from poverty, human rights abuses, humanitarian crisis and the effects of environmental degradation,” he added.
Ki-Moon wants us to take a moment during our happy celebrations to remember those who may not be as fortunate as you are.
