546 leaves


 
I have begun this drawing of the 546 leaves I collected today from the Pacific Spirit Park to represent the 546 children separated from their parents. As a parent and grandparent who loves his children and grandchildren so much this is my way of representing the heartbreak and the anguish being felt by so many families suffering in this tragic story of state supported kidnapping of children.
 

 
As the drawing continues I will post its progress and will be thinking of each child as I draw every one of these fragile leaves.

  1. What a beautiful project to commemorate them. I wish everyone could hear that story and feel the same. I’m still surprised that some people don’t have any empathy. I look forward to seeing this!
