Peace March

Rights not Fights!  Chanting and singing, the entire FCS community marches each winter to commemorate Dr. MLK,Jr's birthday and the 1963 Children's March.
The 8th graders read speeches and led us in song affirming the ideals of peace and equality. Meeting Partners made signs together sharing their convictions and making their citizen voices heard: 

Rights not fights...Everyone can be great...Love not hate...War is won with words...Everyone is equal...Shake a person's hand...and many others in support of peace and justice.
