ISCO Festival experience to treasure
It’s an invaluable gift and one that can bind humans of different nations, different races, different cultures.
And it’s a gift that will be nurtured on Saturday as the International Student Cultural Organization hosts its annual International Festival at Troy
The gathering, which centers on food and tradition, offers an opportunity for
people of different backgrounds and cultures to gather, to share and to learn
from and with each other. Only about 200 lucky ticketholders will take part in the event, but those who do will have an experience to treasure.
The festival offers a chance to meet at the traditional table of peace – the
dinner table – for fellowship and friendship. As participants ‘break bread’
with friends old and new, they will break down barriers of prejudice and of ignorance.
And, hopefully, they will gain a greater understanding of other people, other cultures. And that understanding could help promote the peace we all long for in our world.
