Peace takes courage

Ava Lowrey is a 15 year old artist and peace activist. She put an animation on the web, WWJD, which made her the target of some extraordinary hate mail. It is a powerful animation, which you can see here: http://peacetakescourage.cf.huffingtonpost.com/animations/wwjd.html

She has a new animation, http://peacetakescourage.cf.huffingtonpost.com/animations/32.html
which answers the hate mail -- this comes with a warning: adult language and poor spelling ahead, because she quotes from those attacks. This young woman is a true patriot. Check it out.

It made me cry. That is so powerful. Thanks for posting that, Jood. 15 years old - amazing. Thank God there are some younger people who aren't drinking the Kool-Aid.

Sue, I've not seen "Paper Clips" -- where is it?

Alicia, I had the same response. Ava has the eyes of a true artist, the heart of a lion. Just amazes me.
