heroes - community raising

Under the chaos of COVID-19, heroes rise to the challenge. Rise to raise their communities out of the chaos. This sculpture is a tribute to all of our heroes.

being neither selfish or shortsighted, together we “raise” our community and our world and together we survive and thrive.

harkens back to the days when the community would come together for “barn raising” or “community raising - jointly building and sustaining a community”.  

heroes - community raising

existential threat

Existential threats to Earth and all its inhabitants are posed by creatures as diverse as humans and as viruses and bacteria. COVID-19 is just one of them. Each of these is a major but not unsurmountable challenge to the future of Earth and all its inhabitants.

Our choice, the humans’ choice, is to cause an endangered future (our current path) or ensure a thriving future for all (much better path).  

existential threat

i can't breathe  

We all need to breathe to survive and thrive. If we can’t breathe, we die. Not survive. Not thrive.

Joining together, we can and must ensure that we all can breathe now and for the future.
