21. Kids are smarter than you think, Others had the earrings on also
I saw other athletes with the earrings on. Mom thought maybe someone gave them to the athletes for PR.

I think Shawn made a very conscience decision to wear these bright/white earrings to make a statement.
She is 16. she doesn't want her friends to be drafted to war.

Although kids might not tell their parents or other adults about pushing Peace.. that wouldnt' be cool. They know what is up and what is in their future.
