In a cold rain on the campus of Principia College, students, faculty and community members join the artist in commemorating Iraqi widows in silent, thoughtful drawing of lines. I drew a quilt with alternating patterns. Others drew interlocking circles that gradually freed up and seemed to take flight, an intricately patterned figure, and patchwork of lines and crossed out lines, thin lines and thick, straight and curvilinear. One woman drew an empty box, "preserving the negative." It was very quiet, peaceful, somber, respectful.
