Paper Cranes

Poetry for Peace Contest

The Poetry for Peace contest was held from 15 September until 14 October 2011. The winners were anounced at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York.

Below is one of the contest entries.

Horrible Things happen in the world
This will break many people
But what can one do
One is too small and broken
Will there be hope
Pray for those who need the most help
And hope they will become strong

— Isidora Papagiannakis
