Today at school, we participated in World Peace Day by participating in Pinwheels for Peace, which was celebrated around the world. Nearly all of our students in grades K-12 made pinwheels for peace as a visual public statement about peace and we had a small ceremony this morning in front of the school.
I was the official/unofficial photographer and uploaded a set of photos to the website. The younger children seemed excited to have their pinwheel added to the front garden at school.
As I went around looking at all the beautiful designs, I realized again how glad I am to have this job. I realize this all the time, almost every day.
Some of these are really quite beautiful.
Our two art teachers, one of whom is my friend Margie (she’s the one who lent me Eat, Love, Pray), organized the creation of the pinwheels and the event itself.
I got so excited, I made another mosaic. I’m going to have it printed and hang it up in the school office.
I looked up at one point and saw these four little birds along the weathervane at the top of the cupola.
This is my friend, Margie. She’s really all that and a bag of chips.
Until tomorrow, my friends . . .
