Peace Jam Field Trip to the U.N.
The peace loving school club Peace Jam ventured to New York City a month ago to visit the United Nations. There they heard the “messengers of peace” speak about the various troubles around the world. Some of the guest speakers included Jane Goodall, actor Michael Douglas, and author of a series of moving novels about the Holocaust, Elie Wiesel.
Peace Jammer Tara Leite says “I learned about the situations in Liberia and Afghanistan, and ways to spread the news about various world issues.”
The field trip seemed to be a real eye opener for the members of Peace Jam as it was both moving and informative.
Tara says people should “realize the great opportunities that [they] are presented with” when they join these great clubs and various youth groups.
