My mom'a @pbshaw most recent piece: "Somebody's Child" "I was raised to believe all people are created equal, and that as a society we are only as good as the way we treat our most vulnerable, fragile, light. Not only those that touch our lives but even more so - those that never will. All summer long I thought about separated, scared, and sad children. Over and over I felt the heartbreak that comes from knowing we are not doing well. Our caring for each other feels like a long distant memory." For the children who were scared and alone held at the border, for the children who don't understand why they were taken from their parents, for the children who still haven't gotten back to their families, and for the children who possibly never will. We are so sorry, and these are for you.
This piece is currently hanging in the Gertz Gallery at Parkland College if anyone would like a chance to see it ❤️
