In 2011, D’Bankzz an original Earth Day Kid was encouraged to create a peace song. The effects of Trayvon Martin’s Death resonated with D’Bankzz and she emerged with a composition which she named “Put The Guns To Sleep”.
In 2012 D’Bankzz & The Earth Day Kids performed “Put The Guns To Sleep” for the 1st time During their 2nd appearance at The United Nations International Day Of Peace at Independence Mall Park.

“Violence is impractical because it is a descending spiral ending in destruction for all. It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding: it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible. It leaves society in monologue rather than dialogue. Violence ends up defeating itself. It creates bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers.”
– Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
