Wheaton Warrenville South junior wins peace essay award
WHEATON – A world in which war is illegal is often thought of as a fantasy. But technically, that day is here – and has been since 1928.
That’s the argument of the West Suburban Faith-based Peace Coalition, which recently held a peace-themed essay contest won by Wheaton Warrenville South High School junior Isobel Michaud.
After World War I, dozens of nations, including Germany, France, Sweden, Turkey, the Soviet Union and the United States signed the Kellogg-Briand Pact, a treaty that said all signatories agreed “that the settlement or solution of all disputes or conflicts of whatever nature or of whatever origin they may be, which may arise among them, shall never be sought except by pacific means.”
