Stop the Terrorism
Terrorism is an unexpected attack, that people sacrifice their lives for an idea that they have.  More than 2,000 people die each year, all over the world, from these attacks.  People are trying to stop terrorism by securing airports, and have better country defenses. There are many people that are in local and global peace groups that encourage people not to be a part of it.
For the hexagon, I used colored pencils, a number 2 pencil, and a thin felt tip pen.  I used it because I thought it would help show the color contrast
The picture is of the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York City.  I used pencils to symbolize the fog that was created, and put in the words “Stop the Terrorism” to make it look like it was written in the fog.  The 9/11 attack killed hundreds of people, but yet it built our country stronger.

Each hexagon in this booklet has important to the conflict of terrorism.  The airplane is supposed to symbolize the 9/11 attack.  The picture of Earth is supposed to symbolize itself falling apart, because of bombings and other conflicts terrorism causes.  The tombstone is supposed to symbolize  someone who died involving terrorism. The National Guard is supposed to symbolize who protects us.  The "no peace" symbol is there because terrorism and its followers are causing a disturbance to peace. The Stop Terrorism hexagon is telling people to stop, and it shows the blood that is being shed because of it. Lastly, the quote from George W. Bush says that "This was not an act of terrorism, but an act of war." I included it because it was more than just an idea, it started a war.

I really like your hexagon. I liked how you drew the smoke because that day there was a lot of smoke. Also, it's great how you put facts, I learned new facts today! You did a great job portraying the issue through your picture.

I liked how you really brought out the point of your topic. I agree with you 100%. Your hexagon reminds me of 9/11 and think of how bad and as you said unexpected it was. GREAT JOB!

    I teach middle school art in the suburban Chicago area. This project has allowed my eighth grade students to confront global issues and to have an artistic voice that expresses their concerns and passions that one day just might change the world.

    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.
