Creating a new world vision begins with each of us. There continues to be many signs of NEW HOPE that stand before us. We are realizing on many fronts how much we can do together when we work in the spirit of oneness.
Barack Obama's Inauguration Day was a moment of collective change and possibility for all of us as we proved we can be in peace and harmony. We do know how. Still there is more than just showing up for one day. How can we multiply that same reality in our day-to-day living? What does it mean to put our differences to work? What does it mean to you?
Bay Area Artist, Sally K. Green helps us celebrate our many dimensions of difference as individuals in her collective portrait of our human story. Emerging from her Faces in the Neighborhood Series, she helps us look at ourselves and think about what it means inside us. Putting Our Differences to Work Art Exhibit is a self-learning exhibit now showing at the online KNOWLEDGE GALLERY at the Global Dialogue Center. It was originally debuted live at a special event at the well-known Grace Cathedral, the house of prayer for all people in June 2008.
The exhibit also has a story. Sally describes it this way ...
“This exhibit grew out of my “Faces in the Neighborhood” series. The idea was inspired by a long-held dream Debbe Kennedy and I have had as life-long friends: to put our writing and painting together in some meaningful way.”
Take a tour...ponder the points of view; share your own...
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
left his wisdom about the possiblities for a new world vision
that will start from within us...
Now let us rededicate ourselves to the long and bitter ----
but beautiful ----struggle for a new world.
...Shall we say that the odds are too great?
Shall we tell them the struggle is too hard?
The choice is ours, and though we might prefer it otherwise
we must choose in this crucial moment of history.
As James Russell Lowell, eloquently stated [in the Boston Courier
on December 11, 1945 as poem protesting America's war with Mexico]...
Once to every man and nation,
Comes a moment to decide...
Thank you, Sally K. Green for your gift to us and for a long and worthy friendship.
For those who visit, I hope you will share your thoughts about what it means to you.
