Peace


A mural created in 1986 by the children of Bondi Beach Public School, under the guidance of Carol Ruff. It was restored in 2000.

The kids who made the nice mural could be parents themselves today.

More than likely, Dina. Many of them would be older than my own children.

This a beautiful mural Julie all the more meaningful because it was created by the children from Bondi Public School.

I like the image ... it captures the essense of childhood at the beach, but as I thought about what the child is writing it made me think of something that bothers me. Peace might be Ok but I feel that too many political ideas are being peddled by schools.

Wow! That statement is as a red rag to a bull, Joan.
