Re: [teacherartexchange] I hate to be a downer- Pinwheels

I, along with Ann Ayers, began this project with no intention of being controversial. Odd how some people see it this way, right?
We have also encountered a few hesitant participants but we have to keep emphasizing that it is not a political statement. Many of our own students see it as a way to find peace within themselves, sharing peace, and then maybe creating a more peaceful world. A great concept, huh?

So sorry you were met with "non peaceful" thoughts.
Maybe we'll share some of the positive notes and newspaper articles written by others that appreciate what we are all trying to do.

Thanks for your effort...maybe next year?
