This past week, some students from Baylor have been raising awareness on campus about the 3,000 Iraqi children who are dying on a waiting list to receive the heart surgery they desperately need. The students from the Baylor Students for Social Justice did this as one of the inaugural PLC Pinwheels events. The pinwheel is a symbol of lost childhoods (and lost lives) for these kids.

The trauma of their heart conditions often leaves them so fatigued and out-of-breath that they can’t even blow a simple pinwheel.
So they and many student volunteers set out 3,000 pinwheels on Fountain Mall at the center of Baylor’s campus to represent children in Iraq whose lives are just standing still.
