As a person who is dedicated to seeing a more just nation and world, I have often found myself fighting against things. In this issue of “For the 44th on the 4th,” graphic artist and illustrator, Justin West presents a t-shirt design which visualizes our collective state as Americans. In Justin’s image, I see our flag crying, bleeding or both. The image focuses on where we have been and where we now stand. Once these things are clear, we may be able to begin thinking about what it might be like to fight for something powerful and beautiful… like love.
