Pinwheels for Peace
Posted On:
Tuesday, September 27, 2016


            Wednesday, September 21, Alma Bryant High School joined over 1,200 locations to help place over half a million pinwheels all over the world. Pinwheels for Peace started as a small local project in 2005, but quickly became an inspiring movement that prompted others to spread unity and understanding throughout the world. Currently, our world is in the middle of war, and although detrimental times seem to be consuming this place we call home, hope is not lost. There are people everywhere who still see the light at the end of this dark tunnel and many of these people are students at Alma Bryant High School.

Many students have taken the initiative to make their own pinwheels to represent their personal support of this progression. A Japanese exchange student incorporated her culture by using a crane to promote peace. In Japanese culture the crane is a symbol of good fortune and longevity.

Our world is in great need of peace and harmony and the students of Alma Bryant High School are merely a handful of those who are striving to achieve this.
