" The images of peace are ephemeral. The language of peace is subtle.

The reasons for peace, the definitions of peace, the very idea of peace

have to be invented, and invented again.

Children, everybody, here's what to do during war: In a time of

destruction, create something. A poem. A parade. A community. A school.

A vow. A moral principle. One peaceful moment."

at San Francisco City Hall and at San Francisco State University, 11/04. With permission of Kerrie Hovey.

Karrie Hovey, a graduate art student at SF State. created this temporary sculpture, consisting of 1262 .white porcelain stars. The name, of a U.S. or allied soldier killed in Iraq, is written on each star which is a magnet. Karrie wanted people to take a star and place it at another site, so that the stars would be passed around. The star is a reminder of the dead soldier who one could have met if they had not died.

The installation is not a protest but serves as a reminder of the tragedy in Iraq.

Great ideas, it has been said,

come into the world as gently as doves.

Perhaps then, if we listen attentively, we shall hear,

amid the uproar of empires and nations,

a faint flutter of wings, the gentle stirring of life and hope.


Albert Camus
