My Vision of Peace
I was thinking about what peace means to me and wanted to submit an entry that was meaningful to me. I thought that Peace is not just about not going to war...it is about peace in all things â€" peace in family, peace in our love relationships, our communities and our country. There must be peace in how we care for our earth and all the animals on it. If we ourselves walk in peace everyday, our actions will demonstrate that peace. Perhaps then, Peace, like a pebble being thrown into a pond, will ripple out in wider and wider circles from within us into all our communities and finally to our largest social structure...Our World. There is much symbolize in this piece...politics, religion, culture, family. I gathered many things from my home, including photos of family and other loved ones. I gathered all the things I could. Is it complete, hardlyâ€"see if you can find the Peace in All Things.


Medium
I gathered things from the earth, bark, twigs, acorns and seashellsâ€"all, of course, representing our amazing planet. Then I gathered many things around my apartment and things I have saved from childhood and added them to all the earth stuff and made a peace shape with all of it. I took photos of many trees, sky, floors, boardwalks, etc. to create a background and finally decided on the skyâ€"because our air is also a very important part of our living planet. I also kept adding things to the original photograph so it grew over a few weeks. It has all my love in it...Peace!
