Artist's Description

the sunrise this morning, so beautiful it takes my breath away
a Tibetan nun immolates ….. her death should set the world on fire ………….

a nun sacrifices herself to bring our attention to the suffering of her people
and a singer dies from a drug overdose …..
Sister Teresa died after a life of sacrifice to others
and a celebrity princess died in a car accident ….
who does the world focus upon, who does it remember ……

invisible are the multitude of quiet little ones
horrendous the sacrifice that highlights their pain
briefly, the world looks and then forgets
the invisible, the multitude of quiet suffering ones
