ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (WAVY) - Tuesday was International Day of Peace, and students at an elementary school in Elizabeth City used art to help spread the word.
The students created a visual public statement against violence called 'Pinwheels for Peace.'
Brenda Jordan, the art teacher at P.W. Moore Elementary School, started the project after the murder of her 18-year-old nephew.
"Just being honest, being kind, showing love - because of that, it started from my loss of my family member," said Jordan.
