It is too raw, too soon to talk about gun violence for somebody, somewhere in the U.S.  Every. Single. Damned. Day.

The tattered fabric is a calendar of violence.  Of agony.  Of pain.  Of shame. Each burned hole is a mass shooting incident in 2017. Between the tattered strips, one can catch a glimpse of other people going about their daily lives.  The piece was completed on Feb. 14, 2018. Thoughts and prayers are not enough.
