Gratitude Garden: Examples of Immigrant Art Inside a Detention Center

The examples here were created by immigrant women seeking asylum in the USA from the violence in their homelands. The guided art mediation included naming the people who have been instrumental in each woman's safe arrival to the USA and/or persons who are beloved for whatever reason. The cut flowers represent the special persons. The duration of the art reflection time was a prayer of gratitude for the blessing of these (named) persons in one's life.
