Our country has become so terribly polarized and divided that I just had to create a work about how we are being held hostage by differing political opinions. Friends, neighbors and families are hostile to each other with no room for discussion. Family gatherings can turn acidic. Though my portrayal of a basically ruptured flag, I am silently and desperately pleading for truth, science and civility.
