This is Rachia and Meechia, two of my granddaughters. They are sisters in spirit, as well as by blood. I’m uploading this for the Brotherhood challenge, hosted by the Inspired Art group.
OK. This is more like sisterhood, but I think our family represents brotherhood, in the same way that many other American families do. These girls have relatives who are English, German, African American, Cherokee, Sioux, Apache, Northern and Southern Irish, French, Indian (from Mumbai) and Danish. Our family is represented by many faiths: New Age, Catholic, conservative and liberal Protestants, Hindu, Jewish, agnostic. Two of their aunts are happily married to each other.
I think that our children represent the greatest hope for a future of tolerance between peoples, as long as they are given the freedom to decide for themselves. A couple generations ago, this kind of family blending seemed impossible, especially here, in Montana. As idealistic and naive as this may sound, love really does change the world.
