Letterpress Happy Birthday Quilled Hearts Card

2nd week in Sept. and we're celebrating Peace, Love, & Happiness at Tuesday Alchemy. Want to know why? Have you ever heard of International Peace Day which is on Sept. 21st? Today is also the anniversary of 9/11 and so it's important to keep peace and love not too far from our minds. I live in NYC and was in high school at the time. Due to the massive panic we were sent home, but phones weren't working and no mass transportation was running. My bus ride was on average 40 minutes one way, so having to walk home was not on the top of my list of things I want to do when everything was crazy. It was already raining ash and pieces of debris, so air quality was terrible. The next day the city was closed down, so we got to stay home from school. It was scary walking down the streets for a very long time after that day. We had to be evacuated in school a few times after it as well while the SWAT team came in due to a few bomb scares. In my high school? Really? I do understand the precaution of better to be safe than sorry though, but that's an example of the high tension environment we experienced daily. I felt especially bad for those of my friends who covered their heads due to their religion (we're very diverse here) because they were continuously harassed on the streets and in school due to ignorance. Some either took off their hijab or persisted but had a miserable day to day life. Here's to hoping for a world without violence and peace, so people don't have to go through such ordeals in a civilized society.
