War Torn Rookies
Wednesday, May 15, 2002
The United Nations General Assembly recently concluded its first special summit on Children. In an 11th hour agreement, delegates from more than 180 countries agreed on a list of world-wide goals for children's health, education, and safety. In the days before the General Assembly meeting, 400 young people met to talk about the difficulties children face in their countries. A group of WNYC's Radio Rookies sat down to talk with three teenagers, who were in town for the summit, about their experiences coming from countries wounded by war.
