By The Friends School of Atlanta On Friday, February 24, Ambassador Andrew Young addressed the students of The Friends School of Atlanta (FSA), counseling, “It is very important to learn about the entire world. If we are going to have peace in the world, we’re going to have to find a way to know each other better.” The FSA community was thrilled to welcome Ambassador Young, whose positive influence as a civil rights leader, congressman, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and two-term mayor of Atlanta has been felt throughout the world.
