Lines in the Sand - 2/28/15 participation

Tomorrow marks 5 years since the Widowsweave-43days-Lines in the Sand performance where many volunteers and I drew over half a million lines in the sand (and through the snow into the sand) to highlight the plight of Widows in Iran, and 24 years since the end of what The Gulf War. Now I want you to draw your "line in the sand" literally, artistically, metaphorically, in the sand, on paper, in the air, or in whateverway you find meaningful.  Then post it to my artistactivist facebook page, to instagram as consciousv, or to twitter @consciousv.
