I was first introduced to Taoism and the symbol of the Yin Yang my freshman year of high school during our unit on world religions. Since then the Yin Yang has been an ever present symbol in my life (it is actually a permanent symbol at this point). I have best heard it described as a balance of opposites. When trying to decide what to draw for the International Day of Peace I thought back to this balance of opposites. What is peace if nothing else but finding harmony among those with differences. So, for my pinwheel I went back to my old friend because, like in so many situations, I believe he conveys exactly what I wanted to say.
