Superheroes and sheroes at Bowie HS

Tami and I really enjoyed talking with the students who stopped by our table today at Bowie HS.  This is Spirit Week at Bowie, with daily themes, and today's was "Superheroes Day." Lots of students were wearing capes and/or shirts with various super-person images.  We felt our Peace Wheel heroes and sheroes fit in well with that theme.  Bowie HS has a JROTC program.  JROTC students were in uniform today, and a number stopped by the table to check out what we were about.  One student took an "Addicted to War" book to show her instructor.  We hope that our information is shared and taken to heart.

SOY table at Reagan HS

Tami and I displayed our materials today during lunch at Reagan HS and appreciated the students and staff who stopped by to talk, peruse the literature, do some art and spin the peace wheel.
More students know of Malala since she has been in the news for having been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize
