Well maybe we should put these kids in charge, because the real UN sure as heck can't solve any problems. In fact, they are the genesis of a lot of them.

I'd like to offer a big thank you to all the community leaders who made this Model UN conference possible, and especially to the local teachers who create the spaces to let these children shine and build skills that will serve us all in the future. It was a wonderful day of communication, alliance building, creative thinking and problem solving that bodes well for all our futures.

It was an amazing and inspiring event to watch. I was not only proud of the work and accomplishments of my daughter through this program, but was quite moved by the entire process and the skill set that these amazing young people are acquiring by being involved. Bravo!
