Inked Hope

Contributed by johnackimber

The most important human achievement - and the one most worth celebrating is an idea
- the idea that we all have the right to be involved in equitably shaping our lives.
It's a very big idea and like all ideas, it's invisible but it seems to me to that it can be powerfully represented, visibly, in a little bit of ink.
This is not art 'pressed in the service of power', but art - in this case, ink, pressed in the service of the people.
Now that's a real art - and it's worth celebrating.
