Inspiring Tweets around the U.S. during Pride Month

This year may be the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots but people around the U.S. and around the world have been celebrating Pride month. We celebrate this month to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally through pride parades, picnics, parties, or concerts.

2019 Global Peace Index

Here are the results for 2019 Global Peace Index from Vision of Humanity.

The average level of global peacefulness improved very slightly last year on the 2019 Global Peace Index (GPI). This was the first time that the index improved in the last five years. The average country score improved by -0.09 per cent, with 86 countries improving and 76 recording deteriorations.

Four of the nine regions in the world improved in peacefulness in 2019: Russia and Eurasia, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Europe maintained its position as the most peaceful region in the world, which it has held for every year of the GPI. MENA remained the least peaceful region for the fifth year in a row, although it did become more peaceful last year.
