Lillian Mann-Lucas, another sixth-grade student, said the project was "really fun because the whole sixth grade got to participate."
"We actually had a lot of fun making our pinwheels, designing our own peace signs and writing our feelings out on them," said Mann-Lucas. "Like Audrey said, there should be no war - only peace all the time,"
The pinwheels sent a peaceful and aesthetically-pleasing message, said the girls, yet one Ampomah felt should also be a stern message to those who plan violent attacks such as the events that unfolded on Sept. 11, 2001.
"For all the people that are trying to attack us and for all the people who attacked the Twin Towers, shame on you," she said. "They should feel bad for hurting our country. Nobody should attack us or anybody else. We should have peace throughout the world."
In addition to the pinwheels created in the Peru school district, Laundry said Winternitz continued the project at Ausable Valley, with students there creating approximately 100 pinwheels there.
