"This stencil (S830) and mask (S829) represent the handprints of children of today-the outer two rings are the "majority" reaching to the center where the "minority" smaller hands reach out.
Cynthia conceived her Liberty & Justice for All Stencil (S832) back in July of 2020. She writes: "On the eve of Independence Day, our country’s 244th
birthday, I can’t help but feel sadness at the cancellation of many
celebrations around the country. Last night, as I drove through the small town
where I live, the streets were lined with flags-put there by a troop of scouts
most likely-and I thought about the importance of our flag as a powerful symbol
of America’s unity.
"My heart is broken these many years later, as I see Americans so divided on so many issues, and that for many Americans, there has been little liberty and justice.
"The flag filling the heart shape represents my hope that our country can come together with true liberty and justice for all. The “contorted” image of the flag represents our continued struggle to achieve this end."
