Tribute



To all the beautiful women, mothers, sisters, daughters, who leave their families and homes, looking for a life more abundant, a window out of dire destitution, for their people and maybe themselves, and instead find, thousands of miles away, a dungeon of solitude, servitude and death.

To all these women, I dedicate this drawing, and humbly, this I say- Thank you for teaching me again and again not to sit in the comfort of my personal little universe of plenty, and insolently complain.

To all these women I say - Thank you for the little life lessons you gave me while growing up: humbleness, respect, devotion, love, loyalty...

To you I say - Thank you time and again for sharing with us your wonderful talent.

Janjoon, Deli, thank you. Wish I could do more.

Maureen thank you and welcome to the sphere.

Jimmy, our time and age has little relevance to who we truly are. Ten thousands years from now, behind quantum shields and liquid metal suits, we will still be the same.

Ms Levantine, one of my dreams is to one day see myself worthy of getting published. If that day comes, I promise you I will.

I was raised by one of these women,who came at our house while I was 6 mo old and left when I was 23 yo.All her life was dedicated to me and my family.When she went back home,hoping to spend the little money that she earned,there was the Tsunami...She never felt at home outside of her country,and now that she is back,she just want to come back.Our governement refused her the visa,because she is too old for them,around 55.
I will never be greatfull enought to her and to all these women...
