East Texas Girl Scouts Promote Peace

With all of the talk of war and terrorism going on, some East Texans focused their efforts on peaceful understanding today. It was the annual Girl Scout gathering for World Thinking Day.

Over 400 girls turned out today at Spring Hill high school for a day of peace through learning and understanding of other countries and their cultures.

Many came wearing the traditional clothes of 13 different countries represented today. Some even plan on visiting the countries in the future.

The scouts came from all over East Texas and as far away as Dallas to attend todays event. For many "World Thinking Day" is a statement that peace through knowledge can be achieved.
