My week was from December 4th through the 9th of 2006.
I thought that instead of my interpretation of the news giving by the media it would be a good experience to communicate with someone that was living it.
I made contact with a 21 year old marine in the USS Boxer through one of my students. It gave me a glimpse for that week of what he could tell me about those days and the people that experienced with him. This opportunity open my eyes about this young people that volunteer to serve the country have the same dreams of education and for their future as any of the students that I have in the classroom. The difference is that they have been exposed to a situation that will be life changing.............
On my artwork the intention was to represent these individuals standing on the boat each with its inner light (spirit) common to all of us. Some of them probably knew what they were going to face and others probably never imagine it. Who could when you are in war
