Flying Free

December 8th, 2012

Inspired by Dreamers send hopes soaring on the Mall (Tara Bahrampour, Washington Post 12/08/12, page B1). Yesterday, a group of DREAMers flew kites with their own pictures on them on the National Mall. This was a beautiful and brilliant piece of political performance art: kudos to Miguel Luciano for coming up with it.

 

 

Rising up

Into the sky,

 

Still connected

To the only land they know,

 

But now,

They can fly.

 ***

Here’s your theme music, Freebird by Lynyrd Skynyrd. (My personal favorite part is the harmony at the 9” mark.)
