Heroes to Hometowns Audio and Photos

Now my brother is home from the war, when I took this photo he was awayWho the hell am i? I just realized I am you and you are me

Military families are military families —So, as I said to my cousin, Michelle, whose son, Jason, currently deployed in Afghanistan—We must stick together

My Our War project began when I learned of my brother’s deployment to the Middle East.

The artwork in Our War represents a journal entry, for a particular day, that begins in the Summer of 2010.

I do a visual or written work of art during my brother’s deployment that shares what I think of the war, what I am feeling, what I have learned about the war, what I have learned about global issues related to the war and what I have shared with my brother deployed in Our War and our relationship during Our War.

This is my way to honor, to respect, and to reflect upon his service during his deployment as well as all who serve in our war.

Don't ever ask me to feel sorry for a football player

TBI? Really, because before there was an acronym for getting knocked around or beat up… / Before there was a term for when someone hit you so hard you couldn’t get your bearings, you couldn’t find your place, your standing you know what I mean, those who have been there; / So, here we are in this day and age where now we are asked, I am asked to feel sorry for football players …
