Art Therapy & The Teachable Moment
We all have a choice to live in LOVE OR FEAR! Which do you choose?
We had been Downtown less than 2 hours before the riots started. We watched live footage on the news and listened on twitter, in shock & traumatized by terrible scenes of senseless violence. We worried about loved ones who were out working and watched helplessly as beloved heritage buildings were being looted and burned.
Cars were burned. Innocent people terrorized! I wanted to show my child that while there are "challenged people" that will do terrible things, there are also many, many good people in this world. "Puttin an lil' Love on Wall" was very therapeutic for me and for my 8 year old daughter. It allowed the energy surrounding the event to channeled towards good. It also allowed for the teachable moment, so that she could comprehend what had taken place a little better ."
