My Vision of Peace
If I could paint through the night in Prague, I would paint a mural on John Lennon's peace wall. It would express how peace did prevail. I would paint his portrait to remind us all how his lyrics of peace and freedom are still heard and felt through out our nation. I would paint drips of white paint to remind us that even though the police covered these lyrics of freedom and hope at night in an effort to erase a countries soul, the words of humanity and encouragement seeped through in the morning light. The morning light uncovered a voice, a voice that would not be reckoned with, a voice with a heartbeat. I would also paint silhouettes of students offering flowers to the police during a peaceful demonstration. Demonstrating that the best arms are the ones carrying flowers not weapons. Peace has told its story in Prague. On a small wall a nation speaks with timeless lyrics of John Lennon and the Beatles, how simple peace can be if we only give it a chance.
