GUARDIAN ANGEL, IF CHILDREN HAD WINGS

In Conjunction with the Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month
I grew up with parents and all of my friends had parents, yes all my friends had parents. Divorce was a no, no and yet it happens. And if you were about to have a child out of wedlock or something like that, you got married first, and dealt with the aftermath later. Thus the parents made sure that child was registered as a recognized human being in the tapestry of society. At least it gave that child a chance in life out there.
Now what is here and what is there ?
Here you have a child who is somebody. On the other hand which is there, is a child who lacks a registration of recognition through no fault of the child, but rather the cards that were dealt this conscience being. On a road to be abused. Maybe not, it may depend on the child’s guardian angel or angels. There are many relationships with many infinite ways on how people come together, and many infinite ways that forge how communities together, and thus the Who’s Who in a community becomes the common knowledge of that community, in the mere fact of just growing up in the particular community at hand. Some things were never discussed beyond the surface, you knew who was who. The older you got you begin to realize things the old folks never spoke about. And so it was, nothing was new under the sun. The predator depends upon the silence of innocence. And through that silence of innocence it may transform into the predator. As the castle sat at the edge of the town the little children were told of its evils through the various children fairy tales they taught us through our early formative years. Oh those fairy tales. What did the castle secrets hold? The sum of all fears, a smorgasbord of Pandora’s jar, that’s why it had walls. Cyberspace has replaced the castle. The big sporting events have replaced the castle. Private jets have replaced the castle. The subliminal effects of some of the music industry along with the movie industry have replaced the castle. To confuse the youth on the awareness of it’s six senses. The public is beginning to wake up, thank God to the arrogance of the social controllers. To think outside the box is a third eye, it develops a disconnection beyond the wish to control, and if they can’t get you it’s the children. Always the next generation. As the (Pied Piper of Hamelin) cleaned up the rats in the town he wanted to be paid by the town’s children. It’s an outrage to not defend the children.
My painting “GUARDIAN ANGEL” (if children had wings), in a simple description of the painting, you see a blonde woman in a world war two Russian sniper camouflage uniform of that era, she is a protector for the children who have wings. She wears a mask to hide her combat scar, with finger on the trigger nothing is going to stop her from taking care of her flock, (the children). She is their “Guardian Angel”!!!!
