I created this piece to outline why the message behind the OneHeart Call project is so important. The inner heart represents everything that connects us, while the outer shell represents why we lose sight of our similarities. The mallet and chisel represent that strength of empathy, compassion, and a willingness to try to stop the division. We can have so much in common with another individual, yet one factor like race, money, disability, or age can cause us to completely block out our similarities and only see the differences. I used a wheelchair and other mobility aids for a couple of years in middle and high school. This experience made me realize how peers that I used to talk and laugh with every day before I developed a chronic illness suddenly seemed to only see the mobility aid and not the person using it. I hadn’t change, my method of getting around had; my beliefs and interests remained the same. The OneHeart Call project highlights unity and love, which we all need now more than ever.
