Statute of Liberty

I started this blog around 2010 with the purpose of sharing visual images, which include my drawings, paintings and photographs and the art of other people. This post is about love and compassion for children.

I am a United States citizen because I was born here. I did nothing to earn being a citizen. I served in the Army reserves from 1961 until 1967, worked for the United States Air Force as a civilian from 1962 until 1966. I vote.
below is an e-mail that I sent today to my Senators, Roy Blunt and Claire McCaskill that represent Missouri.
I am a 79 year old citizen of the United States that has lived in Missouri for 79 years and have never been so sad and angry at our elected leaders about how we are treating children from other countries. I am a visual artist and have taught at St.Louis Community College at Meramec since 1997. It has my privilege and joy to have taught many students from other countries.
Would you and Senator Roy Blunt please work together to unite the children in President Trump’s detention centers. Would both of you travel to Texas to visit these children and release a statement about when these children are going to be united with their parents?
Work together as human beings and not politicians.
Do this for America and for which ever God you believe in.
I am sending this same message to Roy Blunt.
