While painting the mural we found out that there were a lot of people in the surrounding community that had migrated to the us and were deported back to Portugal for various reasons, mainly being their illegal immigration. We were please to have been able to share a story of struggle from our nation and to have it be so greatly connected to theirs. That’s the true message behind the Capture the Flag campaign – to show the similar struggles all nations and people share, and to inspire cooperation over competition! Conquer the Divide!!!!
Before I forget, I’d like to share with you a website that taught me a lot and I know IWriteALot, but please just click on the link!
