God Bless the Mentally Ill by Juilee  Pryor

Ducked out this morning for bread and papers and found this new peice of graffitti had sprung up overnight. And I just love it. I had to turn around and go home and get my camera and come back and capture it before the tidy town people find it and paint over it.

So here’s a picture of hope and tolerance on a special Sunday morning. God bless the mentally ill and keep them safe.

And a very happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there.

    It’s not something you see everyday…offensive? I’d say it depends on the view…some might think it’s a sarcastic poke at funny or maybe the person who wrote it really had a sincere message…as long as you like it and find a positive message it’s all good :)

    The intent of the graffitti artist isn’t important to me. This shot has gotten people thinking. Excellent!

    No one is completely mentally well or perfect, no one. Some are less well than others – i love this statement. Not at all offensive – more like a tap from our tired concious.

    I like how it covers all the other tags and stands out.
    Nothing insulting about this message

    I don’t find the image offensive in the least. You got people talking and thinking with this photo, and that’s what art is all about. Well done. :)

    there is nothing offensive in this statement to my opinion. I think if anybody was offened is because he/she chose to. “mentally ill” are not bad words. and unfortunately some people are menatlly ill and YES, I hope God does bless them.
