Memorial Day May 31, 2021: "Wounds of War: Peace/Pax/Shalom/Salaam"

I wish that in my lifetime I will see peace
when we no longer feel the need
to kill or maim each other
or assert power over each other
when we truly care for one another
as we were meant to do
when we acknowledge the hurts we have done
to each other and to ourselves
and seek true forgiveness and reconciliation
when we have compassion for ourselves
and each other
I wish that in my lifetime I will see Peace.

Made from old electrical sockets, metal and plastic junk, acrylic paint, wood board.

This project started when I had 62-year-old electric sockets upgraded in my house; many of the sockets were broken. I looked at them and immediately "saw" wounded people.

The piece is unfinished: The background is going to be painted baby blue, and the words "Peace/Pax/Shalom/Salaam" written all around the sockets. Even though it's not yet finished, I wanted to post it today for Memorial Day.
