Childrens Mural




When I was in Bentonville Arkansas admiring and photographing this mural, I would never have believed I would be presenting it 3 months later with such sadness and sorrow for all the children and their families in Newton, Connecticut. 
My thoughts are to all who have a very tough journey ahead of them.

  3. We have a peace mural in Jack London Square also done by children. But it is adults who must take the necessary steps to prevent future tragedies as we've witnessed in Connecticut.

  5. A very nice project, that's what children have to do, express themselves together in a common artwork.

  12. I like these pieces of work where whole schools or classes have come together to make something.

    It certainly is an appropriate time to show something like this after that terrible day last week (and too often before). The mural's a little piece of hope.

  14. My thoughts are with everyone over the pond John... it's happening far too often over here and we have much stricter gun laws.

  15. Wonderful. Kids say it better than all of us - which is why they need to be safe.

    Remember, there is always hope.
