Leaves of New Life: An Homage to Victims of Violence

Congregating around a dying tree trunk we walk sowing red petals. We touch and name parts of our bodies confirming we are still alive and can act. On small green paper leaves we write personal commitments to combat violence in the home and the world and pin them to the trunk, reviving its life and ours.
