HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The mother of a girl killed inside the Sandy Hook Elementary School says she doesn’t consider the graffiti found on a playground built for her daughter to be vandalism.

The message found spray painted Sunday at the Ana Marquez Greene Memorial playground in Hartford read, “Peace to Sandy Hook,” using a peace sign and the numeral “2.” It was later removed.

Nelba Marquez Greene tells WTNH-TV (https://bit.ly/SuNJV6) that someone just wanted to send them a message of peace and equated it to the stuffed animals that victims’ families received after the December, 2012 shooting.

Marquez Greene says she now plans to raise money to put up a graffiti board at the playground, so that if other kids want to leave condolence messages, there is a place for them.
