"IS IT SAFE TO COME OUT?"
Mixed Media Collage - 16" x 20"
Well, I've not much to say this evening except that some time ago when I put the above collage together with scraps of world maps and tiny childrens' faces peeping out from the surface there hadn't yet been a catastrophic earthquake and tsunami in Japan, nor a self-immolating merchant provoking protests and regime change in Egypt, nor missiles and planes falling from the night sky of Libya.
Has it ever been safe for children to come out? Will it ever be? Can I make a difference in the answers to these questions? I don't know - do you?
