Be A Friend

SDP  4-14-12
As I watched these three ladies admire this canvas entitled "Be A Friend" at the Embracing Our Differences art display, I had a sneaking suspicion one of them had a close tie to the piece. Besides artwork, Embracing Our Differences also accepts quotation submittals which are displayed at the bottom of each canvas. Well, the author of the quotation on this piece was standing right there admiring her work with her family.

Meet 14-year-old Daniela Martinez, 8th grade student at Sarasota Middle School and now celebrated author. Out of the 4,500 submissions of artwork and quotations from 53 countries, Daniela's quotation was selected to be part of the Embracing Our Differences display. She told me she felt really good about the honor. That bright smile says it all. What a terrific, outgoing and polite young lady. Congratulations, Daniela!

One never knows the impact of an event like this... She looks exuberant! Perhaps she will become a writer.

A fantastic comment from Ms. Daniela. Wouldn't it be a wonderful place if we could just appreciate differences instead of being afraid of them.

She seems pleased to be photographed and proud to have had her quotation chosen.
