Encouraging Banners, 2007

STOP RELAX THINK 2X REACT

We all need to think before reacting. I used to be compulsive, I would get angry and react. Now I take a few seconds to relax and think to make sure I’m not reacting unjustly.

In the process of making this banner, I tried to answer several questions during the brain storming part of the event. Then, I tried to come up with the best statement that would relate to all the answers. We would try to help each other during the construction of the banners. We became friends, united in a common cause that was also different.

I am hoping to place this in a location where all can see. To get people to realize that there’s been way too much violence.
