Having just returned from driving through El Paso, Texas
I was greatly affected by the cultural division.
One large cyclone fence divides two cultures.
One of extreme wealth and the other side extreme poverty.
Same dirt, same rain, same sun, same air, same water....just a cyclone fence.
On one side, the consumers of the products produced by the sweat shops on the other.
One side has laws and a legal system that will pursue serial killings with vengeance.
The other side is allowing murders to take place within what many believe to be a corrupt system.
Over 400 women have now been murdered in Juarez.
Had it not been for Monica, at Girl Gone Thread Wild I would have never known about this.
Making a piece of art seems so insignificant, yet prayerfully will help draw more attention.
Monica, is not only a fantastic artist but she is a great encourager for artists to take a stand for social issuse.
is now in the works.
A fundraiser for Susan G Komen for the cure, breast cancer awareness.
Go on over to Girl Gone Thread Wild for more info about both of these project.
Remember Jenny Doh's speech, Art Saves!
