A Warrior For Democracy

This is still a democracy. For only the third time in history the House of Representatives voted to impeach a President. The debate on the House floor brought out the worst and the best in our elected officials. But remarks by Representative John Lewis stood out as a reminder to all of us that we each have a role in a democracy:

“When you see something that is not right, not just, not fair, you have a moral obligation to say something, do something,” Representative Lewis said during the impeachment proceedings. “Our children and their children will ask us: ‘What did you do? What did you say?’”

Each of us has the power to continue to strive for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, not just for the privileged few, but for every individual. Your voice and your vote are a foundational element of democracy.

So, in the next 11 months, what will you do and what will you say to keep fighting for equality and representation for all citizens?

Luna Moths symbolize a connection to the moon as a spiritual journey. They are icons of rebirth and dreams.  From a design perspective, I was focused on the Luna Moth as a symbol of transformation and “The Divine Spark” of inspiration.
