Yellow Boots, Kosovo

I have been following the situation with Kosovo lately and read that they have declared their independence and been recognized by western nations. I realize that the separation of Kosovo is painful for some and joyous for others, but I am hopeful that there will be acceptance and peace instead of the bloodshed of a decade ago when Albanians and Serbs were being killed on a daily basis. This piece was done after reading a story about a child killed with her yellow boots still on. It was the first of many anti-war pieces that I did between 1998 and 2001.
