More importantly, organizers hope to instill in the students that they are capable of making a difference.

“The most important element of peace making is just to start,” said Fred Daniels of Rotary District 7190.

Sunday’s event was put on by Rotary International, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping advance goodwill around the world.
