    Home Soil

    "The (POW) Artist Statement"

    "HOME SOIL" was created in recognition of those and their families who stood for justice, truth and freedom. The mural is a tribute to and for those still standing, the fallen, those maimed and the prisoners of war (POW. "HOME SOIL" has been created so that the world and this nation will be forever mindful of those separated from their loved ones, homes and native soil.

    Let us all remember "9-11" and that innocent lives are taken with every war. Rather the war be foreign - "In the name of peace, Democracy, Or Human Rights" or Domestic - "For Socialism, Against Violent Crime, Or Drugs." The result is the same, innocent prisoners of war are entombed in places forever.

    A Cry For Help!
