SINCE 9/11

My grandchildren will never know the freedom from fear my children and I have known. Everything has changed since 9/11. Threat levels, assassinations, wounded and dying soldiers, and suicide bombers permeate everyday life. This body of work conceived September 11, 2001 is my reaction to these troubled times. It is ongoing.
