The International Day against Nuclear Tests is observed on August 29. It was established on December 2, 2009 at the 64th session of the United Nations General Assembly by the resolution 64/35. Since nuclear weapons testing began in the mid-twentieth century, with the first test on 16 July 1945, nearly 2,000 have taken place. The International Day Against Nuclear Tests aims to raise public awareness about the effects of global nuclear weapon tests, and advocates the banning of nuclear tests as a step to achieving a safer world. To mark this year’s International Day Against Nuclear Tests, an exhibition of art related to nuclear testing and nuclear weapons by artists from Austria, China, Kazakhstan, and the United States was on display at the Vienna International Centre.

Mother’s Day in the United States is annually held on the second Sunday of May. It celebrates motherhood and it is a time to appreciate mothers. Many people give gifts, cards, flowers, candy, a meal in a restaurant or other treats to their mother, including grandmothers, great-grandmothers, stepmothers, and foster mothers.
So Blessed by You, Mom
A mother who always cares,
A mother who’s always there.
A mother who always prays,
A mother who always stays.
When things get rough,
When life gets tough,
When all is just too much to bear,
God’s Word she shares.
God’s light she shines.
So blessed God made this mother mine.
