A New Day

 

"Prayer Flag (Indigo)" - Carraher 2020

Prayer Flag (Indigo)
2020.  Acrylic on canvas, 16 x 12 in. 

The approval of President Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act yesterday by the Senate virtually assures its final passage.  To me it feels like, finally, an embrace of the job that needed to be done a year ago – the essential duty that was shirked at best and actively opposed at worst by the last administration.   

In the interim, we lost half a million Americans to the pandemic.  Many of them, I am certain, would not have died if federal leadership had done their job last year. 

So today I post a Prayer Flag to remember those lost and to celebrate the new day and new direction that has begun.  May the vile dereliction that led me to create the Plague Faces never torture this nation again.
