 I finally have time to work with the finished artwork on the Comments of “What does Peace mean to you?” from the LGBTQ youth.  This is the second group of the LGBTQ youth that was organized by Gabriela C. Celeiro, Bilingual Counselor of the Hetrick-Martin Institute.  Thanks to Ms. Gabriela C. Celeiro for introducing my Peace Project to the youth.  There is nice artwork and comments that I would like to share with the viewers.  I will post the current unfinished artwork, step by step as I clean each portion of the poster.

 I will also post part of my finished artwork from 2012 peace project done by the LGBTQ youth group.

I love flowers, they are beautiful.  I wait for the weather to change till spring then I can go to my backyard garden.  I cultivate my garden seeing the plants rising and growing each day.  Then the magic will come when the flowers show up to greet me.  I can spend hours in my little garden.  To keep the beauty of these flowers in winter when I long to see them I take a lot of pictures.  Thanks to the evolution of digital cameras I can take the photographs and print to give to friends or make a slide show or movie.

 When I sat wanting to compose the finished artwork from the LGBTQ youth comments poster I thought of something beautiful.  I want this group of youths to feel beautiful just like my beautiful flowers.  When we feel beautiful then we feel good.  As long as we feel happy we can do a lot of things no matter what some people say.

Below are the sections of my finished artwork that show the written comments from the LGBTQ youth on “What does Peace mean to you?” on my Peace Project Poster that accompanies beautiful flower images that I took from our backyard garden. 

 

 

Equality for All

 

There will be no Peace

Without equality

If the scale of justice

Is unbalanced

 

There are always reasons for oppressors

To put others down

 

At one time women could not own property

And could not vote

And slaves of all races could be sold like cattle

And others historically were also treated wickedly

 

Humanity has evolved

Using our brains and our knowledge

To progress and change

 

Change we must!

Equality is balance

 

Human Rights is for all

And equality is for all 

This will bring peace to the world
