“I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask, ‘Mother, what was war?'” -Eve Merriam
I dream of peace. I know this dream lives in most places of the world, despite the ravages of war in the few places that take center stage. To those who have sacrificed to keep my dream alive, I say thank you.
I share with you today three creative efforts that are not new, but do reflect my love for my country. One is the simple flag drawing above. One is a poem that says what that flag means to me. And one is a video of a fireworks show that I filmed a couple of years ago in downtown Canton, OH.
I hope that you enjoy them, and I hope that your celebrations for Independence Day are safe, creative and fun!
