In the midst of much publicity about homophobia and gang wars, it was refreshing and heartening for me to attend Rinaldi Adult Center, Granada Hills, on May 27 to witness International Day. Students from some 40 countries presented their respective cultures through dance, song and displays of crafts and food. We need to remember from time to time that the United States is unique--as Walt Whitman said, "a nation of nations," indeed a model of the United Nations, which endeavors to address common human needs and to promote living peacefully and productively together.

The only remaining connection Cyprien Munyandamutsa has to his native Rwanda are the grisly images of disease and death that flash nightly across the television screen at his daughter's house in Granada Hills. The countryside where Munyandamutsa, 70, and his wife, Esther Nyiramandwa, 64, lived in the south of Rwanda is deserted, and more than 200 relatives including their parents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins and an 18-year-old adopted son are dead.

Fifty Grant High School seniors who hadn't planned to enroll in college are reconsidering, after participating in a special program that allows them--and students from 15 other schools citywide--to take high school classes and receive credit for them at Santa Monica College. The Van Nuys students, who have limited English skills, are touring the school today and will meet with counselors to lay out a course of study, in the hope that they will enroll in college next fall.

Janet Coronel's Agoura home is a doll's house. Not the kind Ibsen wrote about, but a place where she makes dolls. Coronel, 53, learned the art 30 years ago from a German couple who were her next-door neighbors, and she has been making dolls and teaching others how to make them ever since. Doll making has existed since man began walking upright.

Students at an earthquake-damaged elementary school in Granada Hills will be able to enroll in a nearby middle school in two weeks, parents learned Wednesday--but students at El Camino Real High School in Woodland Hills will be out for at least four weeks and may not be back in their usual classrooms until April. At a meeting attended by more than 1,000 parents and students Wednesday night, parents reacted with outrage to the news of the expected long delay in reopening El Camino Real.

The final bell will sound this month for thousands of San Fernando Valley teen-agers eager to embark on Life After High School. They will exchange their notebooks and nerves for credentials and celebrations. But what about the thousands who didn't graduate? In increasing numbers, they take the GED--General Education Development tests. Last year about 4,000 people took GED exams administered by the Los Angeles Unified School District (slightly more than 3,000 passed), and that number is expected to be much higher this year.
