Lee mural contains a subliminal message?

Students walk pass the three-story mural of Lee University's journey in the Humanities Center everyday, but how often is the giant timeline given a close look?

A closer look at the red trolley, to be specific.

The faces of two kids are hidden inside the windows of said trolley, peering out at all who pass, engrained in Lee's history, whether they ever attend the university or not.

The children belong to Dr. Jerome Hammond, who directed the mural project for the building opening in 2004.

The mural was ultimately designed, however, by McGinty, Inc. in Colorado, and designed by Liz Sullivan.

So what's the message?

Maybe it's to stay young at heart, or perhaps it's just a promotion stunt for Lee's trolley.
