Even though we cannot change or control the events of that fateful day, we can control how we remember the lives lost and the way we react to hate in the world.
When I first heard of the 10 days of Peace, I wanted to know more. The idea is that we use the days that bridge the tragic anniversary of 9/11 and International Peace Day on 9/23 to focus on peace and how we can do our part to help peace thrive.
In History, students are participating in Pinwheels for Peace as a part of this initiative and are using the power of Art to create an installation around our memorial tree in from the school with the pinwheels that are created. Students involved in After School Art will also contribute to this effort.
