The words on Johnson's mural are fading, but if you squint, you can make out her homages to Benito Juarez, in Spanish, across the south wall: "Respect for the rights of others is peace," and to Saint Francis of Assisi across the main wall: "Where there is hatred, let us sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. And where there is sadness, joy."

DeWitt says the group is open to any help and that she's currently looking for original images of the mural so that the paint job looks as much like the original as possible.
