Building peace and security one LEGO brick at a time

It's a good day for the UN, with its chemical weapons inspectors getting honored with a Nobel Peace Prize. The UN has been recognized in other ways over the years. A LEGO model of UN Headquarters was recently unveiled. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon even snapped in the final piece on a large scale version. We got the small kit here in the office --- all 597 pieces. And The World's Nina Porzucki and Andrea Crossan set out to build it.
