The definition of “together we stand” has changed. The division amongst us is great. Stand with those who share your beliefs. Don’t believe that we must stand behind those we don’t believe in like sheep led to slaughter or we are told it is the right thing to do. Individuality and the coming together with those of similar beliefs is how I will continue to live my life. Your life, your choice. One life, one chance.
This sculpture of Forever Hooked is deceiving. The warm feeling of togetherness is in contrast with the 10 pounds of steel used in it’s creation. Intimacy does not need to be soft and fuzzy. It is the bond between two people created by their interactions, their successes and failures, their attributes and their flaws.
