29th October: International Cyrus The Great Day

Happy International Cyrus The Great (600-530 BC) Day.

 

He practised tolerance of religion for all faiths within the Persian Empire, wrote the first international charter of human rights and freed the Jewish people to return to their homeland.

I hope world leaders of the current era understand and recognise the value of respecting their own people, and respecting others from around the world.
