  The photos below say it all. By embracing the unknown and a stranger's hand, young citizens and police "just   went for it" when it came to making molds and casting their hands in plaster. The bonds that were formed       during these few short hours of art-making will last a lifetime. Special thanks to Cheryl Briscoe, Mary Ferazza,     Regina Hightower, Pullman Arts, Pullman Elementary School, and the Officers of the 005th CAPS District for       having the courage to create and capture unforgettable moments.
