Picture
Peace on Earth

By Veronica Boratyn
 

I created my project about the idea of world peace. I used paint, colored pencils, and permanent markers in my work. I also included some quotes by Bertrand Russell, Mahatma Gandhi, and John Lennon. I think they add more meaning and impact to the work. War has reached and affected almost every corner of the world, and it doesn’t have to be that way. War is preventable, and all greed, suffering, and fighting really can be stopped.

           Organizations like Amnesty International and the Nonviolent Peace Force are working to prevent wars and help victims of war when their own governments abandon them by providing them with temporary housing and other necessities. In my artwork I showed what could happen if we don’t learn to get along (the nuclear explosion) and how together we can create something greater than any one of us can individually- and that is Peace on Earth.

    I teach with Emily Cook in a Chicago suburban school. While my students have learned about global issues in the past, this project allowed them to see that these are not problems that people in other places in the world have to deal with, but rather, that these are world problems, and since we all have a civic responsibility to the world, these are our problems too.
