You are loved.
As I was reading The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr., I was struck by the words in its preface, “I believe firmly that love is a transforming power [that] can lift a whole community to new horizons of fair play, goodwill, and justice.”
As I think about my community, what it means to be a citizen locally, nationally and globally, and how I can use what I have to be the change I want to see, I keep coming back to love.
It’s both a complex and incredibly simple thing. And one simple thing I can do is to share more love with my neighbors. I invite you to join me.
On February 24, 2017, I sent out a call for messages of love to share with our neighbors.
On display March 24 to May 6, 2017 in space #9203 on the ninth floor of Artomatic was the response.
My heartfelt thanks to everyone who submitted a message for our neighbors, including:
Liz Smith, Smith Dry Goods, Lowell, Mass.
Julie Selvaggi and Kaia
Marissa Chiappino, age 8
T. Shea, Block Party Press
Shaw and friends
