"Whirled Peace" Day Article
Imagine"Whirled Peace" - Edgewood Students Join Millions of Young People Celebrating Peace

September 21, 2011


edgewood whirled peace small

In today's world, peace needs to become more than just a word. On September 21st Edgewood celebrated 'Pinwheels for Peace' by "planting" pinwheels with messages of peace on the front lawn of our school. Ms. DeVane led Miss Del Carmen's 4th graders in making their own pinwheels for peace. Each student chose a peace theme and decorated his or her pinwheel.  

 

Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project started in 2005 by two Art teachers, Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan, of Coconut Creek, Florida, as a way for students to express their feelings about what's going on in the world and in their lives. In the first year, groups in over 1,325 locations throughout the world were spinning pinwheels on September 21st - there were approximately 500,000 pinwheels spinning throughout the world. Last year (year 6), 2010, over 3.5 million pinwheels were spinning in over 3,500 locations, including the United States, Europe, Asia, Australia, Canada, the Middle East, Africa and South America.

 

Celebrate the hope for a life of peace, lead by the youth of the world!
