On April 5, let's take a moment to reflect and celebrate the International Day of Conscience. This special day was established by the United Nations in 2019 to promote peace, tolerance, and respect for all individuals and cultures around the world. It encourages people to listen to their inner moral compass and make decisions based on conscience rather than external influences. As we celebrate this day, let's spread kindness and empathy towards others and make the world a better place through our actions.
