Their participation is all the more meaningful as Ed Johnetta  Miller contacted us in early November 2012 wishing to be a part of this message. Shortly after in early December a Connecticut Elementary school lived through unexplainable events where precious lives were lost.

After these events, these particular schools lived through difficult times , before  the children began work in the early part of the year on two peace quilts, one to represent each school.Great work by everyone involved.

American Flag Meaning:
The 13 stripes represent the 13 original colonies of the US: Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina and Virginia. The 50 stars represent the individual states that make up the nation. Popular history states the red of the flag represents valor, white stands for liberty or purity and blue represents justice, loyalty and perseverance. These meanings are unofficial though.
