This painting came to life because our high school students concern about violence at Key West High School and community. 

Because of the concerns the students hosted a Stop the Violence event which was held during both lunches on a normal school day.  This gave students an opportunity to write and or speak their thoughts about how to be peaceful and not so hateful.  This is why the Lower Keys PeaceJam group chose this issue for our painting entitled: “Spread the Peace.”
