Wear a Paper Clip Tomorrow!

During WWII, paper clips were worn by Norwegians as a symbol against prejudice and racism.  They were worn on their collar or lapel as a non-violent protest.  Tomorrow, April 20, is Hitler's birthday, but it is also Ms. Nash's.  The most amazing birthday gift  for Ms. Nash would be students wearing a paper clip tomorrow as a symbol of tolerance and remembrance.
