Quick assignment for the NY Times Letters to the Editor, out in today’s paper. The topic is about the recent Supreme Court decision to strike down abortion clinic buffer zones on the grounds of “free speech” (you can read the original article reporting the decision here, and the Letters section here). Previously, protesters had to stay 35ft away from the entrances to abortion clinics (a distance at which they were still able to exercise their ‘right’ to scream and harass) but now they will be allowed to do it directly in the faces of women seeking medical treatment.
Thanks to my AD Nathan Huang. This was an assignment I felt pretty strongly about. If the Letters section wasn’t neutral ground, you can bet I would have drawn the protestors differently in this piece.

The answer?
The answer comes in the form of a handwritten letter from the moon.
It reads:
This is brutally beautiful.
So are we.
This is endless.
So are we.
We can heal this.

P.S. See me for who I am. We’ve got work to do.

- “Human The Death Dance” by Buddy Wakefield

This part from Buddy’s poem “Human the Death Dance” really spoke to me, and put this image really clearly in my head, so I had to go and and make it real. You should read the rest of the poem, its heavy but its great.
