Rosh Hashana is the day of the anniversary of creation of man. The entire world stands in judgement before Hashem, but Bnei Yisroel are the only ones to respond with a Yom Tov. Just like Adam did on the original Rosh Hashana we make Hashem the King over us, and express our desire that the entire world should recognize His glory. When we stand in judgement before our Creator, He checks to see if we are advancing the mission statement of the world, with extra compassion because He is the one who made us.
