‘Blood and Bones’

The text on the painting reads: When justice is gone there is always force
The quote(s) for this work:
I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I’m a human being first and foremost, and as such I’m for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole. Malcolm X (1925 – 1965)
I’ll tell you what justice is. Justice is a knee in the gut from the floor on the chin at night sneaky with a knife brought up down on the magazine of a battleship sandbagged underhanded in the dark without a word of warning.
~Joseph Heller (1923 – ) Source: Catch 22
New work, on a Puckered and burned skin of canvas. Once force is used, justice is lost. De-humanize the masses and all that is left is Revolution. Class wars. Separation. Those that Have and those who Have lost it all. Push will come to shove, and Mothers will grieve the losses of innocent children. Fathers will die in vain. Now is the time for healing and truth.
Now is the time of change.
We are all one, under the skin we wear, the Gods we pray to, the countries flags we live under or with, & who we love. We all are blood and bones. We are souls that have bodies, not bodies that house souls.
Heather *a not so secret agent of change*
