The June EBW Challenge - Heal the World

The June 2011 challenge, chosen by Anna Hatvani, invited our members to create original designs inspired by the theme "Heal the World."
Voting for the challenge runs June 9th - June 15th, 2011. Please visit EBW Blog and vote for your favorite, here:

"Many of us work or volunteer at animal shelters, churches, and in other social fields, and all of us experience daily the wounds of the Earth. Imagine the future our children will inherit: nuclear catastrophes, epidemics, extinct species, environment pollution, wasted water and energy, the effects of Global Warming, child abuse, and wars all around...."

My entry is #11, PEACE on EARTH

Conflict and aggression are extremes that lead to death, to disappearance of humanity, of animals, of plants. War is conflict of power. The way good is able to stand up against evil defines us as humans. Every single person should be the drop that makes the ocean.

Artists are known for always standing up against war through works of art symbolizing the spirit of peace. I hope my little "Peace on Earth" brooch will be able to raise awareness against evil in the world.
