These images of wounded Civil War soldiers are two dimensional monuments of hope, symbolizing the impact of healing the parts of us that are broken. The fractured aspects of our humanity are currently on display, as grotesque as any battlefield of our bloody Civil War. Our ego plays a game with us and declares that we are separate and different from others because of various characteristics: age, race, religion, politics, sex, geography, financial status, and much more. We focus on these situational and temporary elements of our existence, while we regularly go blind to our common essence, the human Spirit.
