Waging peace at McCallum HS
Excellent visit today at McCallum HS. Students have a lot of interest in different aspects of peace -- human rights, animal rights, environmental sustainability, opposition to war. During our tabling last week at Austin HS, a student suggested that we add events to the peace wheel in addition to the individuals. Good idea! So, for this table, I added two events: the Greensboro Sit-ins from 1960 and the Egyptian people's movement taking place this very week. Not many students were aware of what's happening in Egypt. I recommend the coverage being done at the Waging Nonviolence blog.
The penny poll photos above were taken before many students had taken part, but, as always, the education, environment and health care categories wound up with the most pennies.
