All Corners of the World
Can one person unite the world? Is it possible for the short-term actions of one individual to make a lasting impression on the global community? Like every other human being, President Dwight D. Eisenhower had a dream. A dream in which opened the door to many strong and personal beliefs that would soon lead to a world of healing and peace. His dream was born from the horror of WWII, wanting people to realize that while we are all very different, our values, goals, and desire for life are very much the same. In order to fulfill this dream, President Eisenhower, in January of 1956, started an organization called People to People. Simply, Eisenhower hoped the people of different nations would come together for cultural exchange. His mission was to give ordinary citizens the opportunity to talk face to face, share activities, and learn about each other’s cultures.
