All Strings Attached
As a citizen of the United States, not directly involved in a war thousands of miles away, I can't help but feel we are all personally affected. Every part of our society is manipulated by the human and financial cost of war. We see it every day in the media, hear it on the streets and, I believe, subconsciously ingest the rhetoric. My mural panel presents us as "puppets" in terms the the bigger world-wide events. We may choose to hear, speak and see what is happening, but can we touch those who are in control of this overpowering machine?
