PHILADELPHIA -

The City of Philadelphia unveiled its first mural Monday that was designed, created and dedicated to post 9/11 veterans.

The mural, which can be seen on the 4100 block of Woodland Ave. West, was designed and painted by muralists Phillip Adams and Willis Humphrey as part of the "Our City, Our Vets" project.

The mural was named "Communion between a rock and a hard place."

Organizers say the project aims to bring veterans into a conversation with community members to share stories and build a better network for troops who are returning home.

The project was funded by the City of Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services and the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

    NICE EASTER WEEKEND

    The first half of the holiday weekend has been great and Easter Sunday looks just as nice. Clouds thin out late tonight with temperatures falling back to the 40s.

    Initially it'll be jacket weather early Sunday morning but plenty of sunshine will warm us into the 60s by afternoon.  High temperatures will be a few degrees cooler than Saturday.

    It will be noticeably cooler and breezy at the shore with highs in the low 50s.  Quiet conditions continue into Monday.
