“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
There is a story behind the picture you see. The original was taken during the teachers' strike last year here. When I first saw it, I cried because that lady stands for what we believe. She alone faced the police, shouting:"I teach your children!". And yes, we were treated like criminals. I understand they were doing what was demanded. I can forgive them but I can't forgive the system.That photo is art in my opinion. It represents bravery, beauty, strength, ideals, feelings we carry in our hearts and make us get out of our beds and hope for better days. Yes, we lost the battle but not the war... yet.
