My Story Matters: The Family Tree

January 30, 2015

LAH_7051Let us turn our thoughts today 
To Martin Luther King
And recognize that there are ties between us,
All men and women living on the Earth.
Ties of hope and love,
Sister and brotherhood,
That we are bound together
In our desire to see the world
Become a place in which our children
Can grow free and strong.
We are bound together by the task
That stands before us
And the road that lies ahead.
We are bound and we are bound.

~ James Taylor, “Shed a Little Light”

The Family Tree collage panel is a visual depiction of our connectedness to one another- one body, one family.   Using the collage method, the QC Family Tree youth pieced together their individual life-circles with magazine scraps to create the shape of a tree.
