In an effort to brighten streets and neighborhoods and spread a little cheer, children in Brooklyn, NY and Philadelphia, PA have started a rainbow connection. Kids are drawing pictures of rainbows and hanging them up in their windows and front doors so that other kids can see them as they walk by. The idea started in Italy with the slogan “andrà tutto bene”, or “everything will be fine,” with rainbows being a symbol of happiness and smiles. With the stay at home order keeping kids from see their friends or playing on the playground, it’s one small thing they can do to stay in touch and provide a little happiness to each other.
