Elizabeth Leggett | Portico Arts Harbinger of War
One night my mother took me to a local one screen movie theater to see Gandhi. It was only there one night and it was a Big Deal. There was a scene in the movie where the followers of Gandhi was performing a march on the salt works.  It was a heartbreaking and powerful scene but what has stayed with me all these years was watching the Indian nurses preparing an area for care BEFORE the conflict. The women were resolved, sober and aware of what was to come. That memory came into this piece. ~smile~
 
Barring the unexpected, this will be one of four pieces in a series.  Please bring your own stories to this piece.  That is the best part of what I do. Thank you.

"The highest greatness, surviving time and stone, is that which proceeds from the soul of man. Monarchs and cabinets, generals and admirals, with the pomp of court and the circumstance of war, in the lapse of time disappear from sight; but the pioneers of truth, though poor and lowly, especially those whose example elevates human nature, and teaches the rights of man, so that "a government of the people, by the people, for the people, may not perish from the earth;" such a harbinger can never be forgotten, and their renown spreads co-extensive with the cause they served so well." 

- Charles Sumner
