Mural with a Message


Two weekends ago, I went out looking for murals in an area of town where I knew there would be many.  However, this one stopped me in my tracks.  It's on the side of a thrift store that caters to an immigrant population.  I translated what it says off to the left side.  It reads "Damn the soldier who points his weapon against his people."  It's sort of heart-wrenching, don't you think?  It's also sort of ironic that looming above is the view of a billboard advertising a military recruitment program.

In a way the soldiers are damned if they do and damned if they don't. A powerful find here Sharon.
