17 new leaves and remembrance

666…in progress – Day XXXI

 
17 new leaves, on a day on which I remember as if it were yesterday, like some of you I suspect, as a 17 year old schoolboy where I was when I heard that President Kennedy had been assassinated. These inspiring words from his inaugural address could not be a more relevant call to action today.

“Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country.”

12 new leaves

666…in progress – Day XXVIII

534 leaves completed on a day when we learn that the White House killed a deal in October 2019 to pay for mental health care for migrant families separated at the border.

12 new leaves and family


 

666...in progress – Day XXVII

After drawing today’s 12 leafs I was lucky enough to be able to spend an afternoon with our two beautiful grandchildren. I couldn’t help thinking about the separated children the leaves represent and how important it is to keep them and their families in our thoughts each every day until they are all reunited.
