We Have Rights Too by Marsha Hatcher

 As an artist, I am always looking for ways to express important messages through my artwork. My latest piece, titled "We Have Rights Too," is a powerful reflection on the impact of school shootings in America. The artwork is a 36x36 acrylic painting on canvas, depicting the American flag with a thought-provoking twist.

Instead of traditional stars, the flag is punctuated with bullet holes, representing the devastating toll that gun violence has taken on our nation's youth. But what makes this piece truly unique is the faces of innocent children woven into the red and white stripes of the flag. These haunting images serve as a reminder of the lives lost and the futures cut short by senseless acts of violence.

The inspiration for this artwork came from a deep sense of frustration and anger at the ongoing epidemic of school shootings in America. As a mother myself, the thought of sending my own children off to school each day in a world where such tragedies can occur is truly heartbreaking. Through "We Have Rights Too," I hope to spark conversations and encourage actions that will lead to meaningful change.

While creating this piece was emotionally challenging, it was also incredibly cathartic. I poured my heart and soul into each brushstroke, determined to make a statement that cannot be ignored. My hope is that those who view this artwork will be moved to take a stand against gun violence and advocate for the safety and well-being of all children.

"We Have Rights Too" is more than just a painting – it is a call to action. It is a reminder that we must never become complacent in the face of senseless violence, and that we all have a responsibility to create a safer, more compassionate world for future generations. Thank you for taking the time to learn about my latest artwork, and I hope that it inspires you to make a difference in the world around you.
