Aug. 19, 2003, I was in Mosul with my team finalizing the preparations of U.N. Special Representative in Iraq Sergio Viera de Mello's first visit planned to take place the following day.This year's World Humanitarian Day campaign aims to advocate for a more peaceful and humane world, and to create widespread support for humanitarian action.I am inspired by your humanitarian action but also by your resilience, and it is the U.N. and international community's responsibility to maintain our support to Lebanon to meet the needs of the most vulnerable.Lebanon should be an example to the Summit, showing that each one of us can make a difference in the lives of others; and each one of us has the power to inspire others to take action to create a more humane world.Philippe Lazzarini is U.N. resident and humanitarian coordinator.
