However you’re feeling about the current political climate and your place in it, it’s good to know you’re not alone. That there are those out there also struggling, and making art that hopefully speaks to you. Whether you are liberal or conservative, it’s always interesting to dissect and take in the messages that others are putting out into the world. Some pieces are simple, peace and hope, while others are more aggressive and angry. However you feel, however you communicate, I think Captain America would say, it’s all valid.
