MAKE PEACE SYMBOL IN SCHOOLS
Teens use New Make Peace symbol in school murals
by Terry Milest
Teens in Glendale middle school, Salt Lake city, Utah have adopted the new Make peace symbol into their school murals. Alex Martinez stated: "It's cool, it says something new for everyone, that's why we decided to paint it and spread it around everywhere". Additional school mural projects throughout the city and suburbs are also under way to inspire proactive peace making and to ask others to "make peace".
The Make Peace movement though has spread throughout the world especially with street and graffiti artists, from cities like New York to Miami, it has taken on a life of it own, from artists, streets, knitting circles, DIY crafters, the new make peace symbol is being adopted to send a strong and clear message of hope. While in the Middle east still struggling on it's path to democracy it has become in the words of one middle eat street artist: "Soft political cover and deniability".
