Integrity

My inspiration came from a CNN alert on Monday, January 30th. It was the notification that Sally Yates had been fired. I read more into it and was inspired by her strength and integrity. It sat with me for a couple of hours and I was thinking about the nature of her firing. It was truly patriotic. I was also thinking about Trump’s iconic “You’re fired” line. It then hit me. I wanted to portray Trump as a child in the background with the Statue of Liberty comforting Sally in the foreground. As Sally Exits, she’s holding the American flag, carrying it with her. I don’t know what the future has in store, but I am worried. I hope that there are more people like Sally, fighting for truth and justice.
