At this time, with so much pain, destruction, and negative actions in our World, I feel compelled – as an artist and a citizen of this wonderful Planet – to bring attention to what it means to be human and what our fundamental rights are as human beings. The right to be safe, the right to nourishment, and the right to freedom.
