intrnl day for toleranceIn 1995 the 16th of November was declared The International Day for Tolerance, an annual observance to generate public awareness of the dangers of intolerance.

I didn’t know this date existed as an official declaration, but it’s easy to see the need  for positive measures to promote tolerance in our societies, because tolerance is not only a cherished principle, but also a necessity for peace and for the economic and social advancement of all peoples.  Take time to read through the wiki page linked above, and think about the noble goal of encouraging respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, without distinction.
