Made my heart sing watching it build momentum today from a question to a few to the many and hopefully to the many more and that it might just make a difference for those children.
And not just painting… Use your creativity and your medium of choice. Mine is stitched.

I love that this is a nascent movement. In a similar vein, I want to share with you a piece written by my husband about the “Necessary Uselessness of Poetry.” He wrote it in response to one of our local government officials stating that poetry was a “pre-Wal-Mart major” and therefore, useless. http://www.eriereader.com/article/the-necessary-uselessness-of-poetry

So much to say.
Every child, is everyone’s child. Simple as that. I quoted the Manic Street Preachers, and will repeat that – “If you tolerate this, your children will be next” And Nicola Davies’ poem, echoes this.
There is a charity ‘Freedom from Torture’ which helps those who, as this child has, end up with war behind their eyes, in every fibre of their being.
I won’t go on and on, I don’t need to. Nicola says her poem is ‘rough and ready’, it’s not, it’s sound, absolutely sound.
What I will do, is send this link on, too.
You know such sound, great, people, Jackie. You recognize each other.
God above, what a species we are – such wonder and such destruction.

Liked at FB. When will we wake.
Our political landscape is bleak over here except for Bernie the brave and true. He won’t win but he will continue carrying the message of gazillions of supporters to the very last moment, and they will continue it, and then he’ll return to the Senate.
