“I’m so mean I make medicine sick”

“Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”

“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth”

The mural was created as a community project, with people of all ages invited to paint.

The artist Lauren Andreu designed the mural as a “paint by numbers” project. This is one of the murals in her series “For the Cause of Peace and Brotherhood”.

Children using the gym leave messages on the mural:

I’m giving three thumbs up on this great mural find on Hilton Head Island South Carolina.

One for “The Greatest” Muhammad Ali and his desire to inspire

One for the artist for bringing this message to a new generation

One for all those that participated in the creation of this piece of art.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day πŸ™‚
