No Faces, No Names...

Please be advised that our text and margins are all wonky!

We have a very different post this weekend.

We were busy on Valentines Day (and the following several days) working on an art  project with
students, many of whom have family members who are undocumented or are here with visa's or those
who have come here as refugee's, who are understandably frightened and anxious what
with all of the current rhetoric about deportation and refugee bans and ICE raids that are taking place right now.

So, we got kids and crayons together along with three hundred feet of white butcher paper to help
them make a visual statement to send to local  politician's.
We decided that due to the potential for some type of retribution directed at those who participated or their families we would have to do the whole project in anonymity, hence the no faces, no names, title.
What started out as three hundred feet of blank paper, over three days turned into a breath taking and
inspiring work of art with powerful messages.

We decided to share a tiny fraction of their work with you...

Have a wonderful weekend,

Noodle and crew

  7. That is beautiful. I hope this makes statement to get noticed. No child should have to worry about being thrown out of the country or that their parents will.

  8. As the saying goes, out of the mouths of babes. Your Mom should be very proud of her students. I hope this gets noticed by the powers that be and they think about what they are doing.

  9. Those are just wonderful. We have a lot of scared folks where we are, too.

  11. It's a very sad time. I find myself wanting to turn off the television and not see what's happening.

  12. What an amazing project. We can only imagine how frightened these individuals are. Our country wouldn't even exist without immigrants. Betty mentioned wanting to turn off the TV. Our humans are not watching the news anymore (most of the time). They cannot stand hearing anymore from or about you-know-who!
