If we could see ourselves as all the colors in the crayon box in all the shades we would be kinder we would be able to feel if just for a moment another’s life and our world could change in such a way that children would not worry about if they are too light or too dark to belong and they could feel safe. There are 12 girls and each girl is made from 12 colors in a Crayola Crayon box making a total of 144 girls.
