Mr. Obama, Tear Down This Wall

Been slow around here lately so I went out and shot some spec work on a vigil held at the U.S.-Mexico Border. In light of the Berlin Wall coming down 20 years ago today, activists staged a protest at our wall to bring to light human rights issues between Mexico and America. For generations families would gather at Friendship Park and re-unite with relatives by having picnics with their loved ones on the other side of the wall. Well, the U.S. Government put an end to this decades old tradition by erecting a new fence which has in effect, put this to an end. It’s very sad to separate these families all in the name of homeland security. I just hope our current administration will recognize that it is more beneficial and safer to create goodwill between ourselves and our neighbors.
