Walden's Peace Tree was inspired by Canadian film director and founder of Peace Tree International, Mitra Sen, and her film, the Peace Tree, that she showed our school earlier in the year. Our tree celebrates the world's major religions including Buddhism (lotus flower), Aboriginal Dreamtime (Aboriginal dot paintings), Judaism (the Star of David), Taoism (Yin/Yang symbol), Islam (Crescent Moon and Stars), Christianity (Angel), Hinduism (Elephant), Kwanzaa (candles), and Indigenous American tribes (talking sticks). Miss Sarah's art students worked on a project each week to create this symbol of cultural diversity and acceptance.
