Ladies and Gentlemen,
Is this sentence below grammatically correct ? I mean the word "convinced" follows the word " depart" correct , If not what should the sentence be correctly changed to ? Thank you.
"I depart convinced that today's U.N. does more than ever before, and does it better than ever before. Yet our work is far from complete — indeed, it never will be," Annan said.
If it is this part that's under consideration:
"I depart convinced that today's U.N. does more than ever before...
It might be clearer if it were changed to this:
"I depart the U.N. convinced that it does more than ever before...
That's just a matter of this reader's preference, technically the version you posted is not incorrect, merely awkward.
Thank you Les . I feel better now
I wonder if there ever was confusion between "You're Kofi" and "Your coffee"

It's really a matter of correct punctuation. Insert a comma after "depart" and the sentence is grammatically correct. "I depart, convinced that today's UN...." is technically fine.
