Outside our windows, the world is on fire. We tire as liars continue to hold power in our midst. But as students we are resilient. Not for our skin of steel, fast wheels, eloquent spiels, and unbreakable spirit; for tears have torn our insides apart, we’ve felt the pain of bleeding hearts, and the lonely emptiness of nights without stars. Yet we find our solace through art. Creative expression guides our healing, reeling us to an idyllic view of the world we once knew as kids. Our resilience isn’t a product of our callous hearts and cold barks, but a result of art’s unique, supernatural restoration. Look through the gallery and station yourself before the works of others having patience with the healing process, and heeding every wordless call to find the inner strength which sits within us all.
