Artist's Description

With conspiracy theories and drama over the recent election, I thought I’d make a little something for it. Yes, I was McCain supporter, but don’t let that take away from this image. Even though we have a new president, there are still the same issues that most people are afraid of, or have beliefs that would scare the general public; War, WMD’s, Protection, Terrorism, Secrets, Armageddon, the second coming of Christ, Nuclear Holocaust, World War 3, Chemical Warfare, our children, our future, Crime, Safety, General Healthcare, and so on and so forth.
Why can’t we just stop living in fear, and do something to make us not afraid? Why just sit and bitch and complain, when you can get out, and do something? Why can’t people put their ideas into actions? The youth that are truly involved in today’s politics know more than most adults voting, but they don’t have a voice because of their age, and their generation, and how adults think that they’re all lazy and not putting forth an effort, when in reality, that’s all they hear about. It’s so rare that any good a teenager or young adult, or even a child does something good becomes known to the general public. So their voice continues to be unheard, and distrusted until they are old enough to vote. I was one of those people. Now that I am 18, I hope I can be a voice for those who have none. We’ve grown up in a time where there is little racism among us (not including the adults), where if you give someone a lesson in history and how things aren’t how the Constitution says they should be, “why?” is the question that is constantly asked. “why can’t people just accept everyone?” “what’s wrong with those people? they seem nice to me. they are nice to me. I have no problem with them, so why aren’t I allowed to see them or talk to them in public?” “why are we afraid?” “why are we fighting?” “why can’t everyone just be happy with what they have?” “why does the Constitution not mean anything anymore?”. I am their voice. They need to be heard. And until they are of age, I will continue to be their voice. Once they have reached the age of 18, they will join me in reaching out and letting others be heard. The world needs to hear us, and we’re ready to yell it at the top of our lungs.
