The Green Party Local in Howard County, Maryland.

24 February 2006

Seen around Columbia

Uniformed soldiers have begun appearing in public lavoratories and other unexpected places around town, each bearing a banner with a peace sign, asking the viewer to "Bring Me Home". This one drags him from webbing, on his back, as though it were a parachute.



The question is how many people will see them, and what will their eventual fate be. Will they be brought home (and, if so, will their request for peace be respected, or will they face the inevitable mayhem and destruction which often awaits dollar store 'army men'), or will they be tossed away by the first janitor who comes across them?

How will the person deciding their fate relate them to the actual, living soldiers whom they represent? It's a very small, hopefully thought provoking, excercise.
