This week, David Tirado has been thinking about plants and new life.
The recent tornadoes in Alabama and the media coverage of the destruction brought back memories for David. Being from Puerto Rico and still taking numerous trips there, David knows a lot about hurricanes and the damage that they can cause. He talked about staring out the windows and seeing the waves and the winds. The recent tornadoes also reminded him of the damage from Hurricane Katrina and how these kinds of storms leave people with nothing. His family gives a lot of stuff to people who don’t have any and so when asked about what was on his mind this week, he said, “New Life.”
He said that when he thought about areas with no power, he also thought about areas with no plants. So to contrast the images of the destruction, he found these images of “New Life.”
