43 years ago today a nation was born. Sheikh Zayed of Abu Dhabi became the first leader of the United Arab Emirates. Good choice. He believed women were vital to the development of the nation and invested oil revenues into projects to improve the harsh desert environment.

We’ll be celebrating and wearing the colours of the flag with everybody else.
