Thank You

Thank you Suvo for not letting us forget that this is “the land of the free and the home of the brave.” Your tenacity and perseverance for what is just and protected by the highest law, has kept the rest of us in check these past, long and hard years for you: the brave.

We know that the best of writers are those who can make themselves understood through rich imagery. Yet the visual artist is seen as an oddity by City Hall, unless it’s big name can fetch many dollars in investments through a gallery business. Street artists have the blessing of passing on a message at low cost, because “A picture is worth a thousand words”, it is sheer imagery, and is accessible to Everyman: freedom of speech for all, as protected by the First Amendment to our US Constitution.

We watched you and Karl being hauled off to jail for defending the First and most noble of rules in our Constitution. They had the guns, and they could have killed us all, regardless of the Constitution, compliments of a bunch of incompetents at City Hall. But you stood your ground.

Thank you, Suvo, for facing the bullets and for all that you have taught us. Your efforts will not be forgotten nor be in vain.

Visual artist, Helena Sala
