Gunn students observe International Day of Peace


Gunn High School students spent their lunch break Tuesday (Sept. 21) folding origami paper cranes in observance of the United Nations' International Day of Peace.

Organizers, including Gunn's Student Executive Council, the Youth Community Service Club-Interact Club and the Shinnyo-en Foundation, challenged students to fold 1,000 cranes, which are now hanging around the Gunn campus.

The International Day of Peace, established by a UN resolution in 1981, is observed in many nations around the world and includes the chiming at UN Headquarters of the Peace Bell, cast from coins donated by children from around the world.
