Lebanon, first-hand

Listen to this story
World leaders are beginning to call for deployment of an international peace force in Lebanon. British Prime Minister Tony Blair said an international force could stop the bombardment of Israel from Lebanese territory. That, in turn, would stop retaliatory airstrikes from Israel. UN Secretary General Kofi Annan says no more suffering should be inflicted on civilians in either of the neighboring countries. Prairie Summer has lived in southern Lebanon for the last half year, working with teenagers. While there, she finished her master's degree in International Educational Development from Columbia University. She grew up in Russell, outside Canton, and graduated from Canton High School in 1997. Coincidentally, she was on her way home to the North Country when the fighting began last week. She told Martha Foley she's fallen in love with Lebanon and is planning to return there as soon as she can.
