visions of home

 
Home is both universally understood and deeply intimate. A place where we feel safe, where we are near the people we love, where we are able to grow and build within. But when the walls that we call home fall to rubble, when the people we love struggle through streets clouded with rage, when every breath, every chance we have is strangled by ash – what then? As simple as home is, once lost, finding it again is bitterly complicated. It becomes a battle against nature and man – the dark waters of the Mediterranean, choked and skeletal deserts, camps and barbed wire. We chose the above image because we believe that it represents with clarity the violence and sorrow felt by the loss of one’s home. Yet, at the same time, it connects to the tenacity of the human spirit, the hopes we save for our children, the dangers we seek to protect them from. This image conveys a story that extends beyond the marketing of grief and the profit in harrowing images of war, it connects to something pure, something untouchable: looking past the barbed wire, past the dirt and the dust, we see people - no different from ourselves, looking for a future, to the past and toward visions of home.
