McGruder Social Practice Artist Residency
The system is cracked - how does she know? - She just fell
like a solitary drop of water - descending from the security of its icicle home on a sunny day.
dropping right into a predator's snare. He said he loved her - before he sold
She is a product of welfare and foster care - two systems broken -
filled to the brim - overloaded, saturated, satiated. Young ones
trickling down into the waste waters of human trafficking
everyday, every hour, every minute, every second…Who cares about
“I’ll fix it” he said, like Superman swooping in to mend a ragged train track.-
just in the nick of time. “Make America Great Again” he said.
But her America is not great again - her America is fractured - severed without stitches.
Reform is needed, change is needed, caring is needed before we lose even ONE more
Neglected systems, needing help.
People lost - begging for help.
