U.N. NAMES STEVIE WONDER "PEACE MESSENGER"
As far as I'm concerned, you can't give Stevie Wonder enough honors. He's just so great. He exudes goodness, but also coolness, and some of his songs are so badass. I'm glad that the U.N. named him a "messenger of peace" (according to Reuters). He kind of already was that anyway, but nice of them to formalize it! His "messenger" status will have a special focus on people with disabilities. Messengers of peace are celebs who promote U.N. activities through public appearances. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon said that Stevie is "a true inspiration to young people all over the world about what can be achieved despite any physical limitations." No doubt!
