a memorial mural for Laura Patricia Calle in Atlanta, Georgia. Many thanks go out to Monica Campana, Peter Ferrari, Forward Warrior, Emily Adrian, Living Walls Atlanta and The Center for Civic Innovation for making this tribute happen. To the Calle family for helping me paint this mural and to the entire Atlanta family that has always shown me what community is really all about. To the memory of Laura Patricia Calle I dedicate the following:
LA VIDA NO ES LA QUE VIVIMOS.
LA VIDA ES EL HONOR Y EL RECUERDO.
POR ESO MAS VALE MORIR
CON EL PUEBLO VIVO,
Y NO VIVIR
CON EL PUEBLO MUERTO.
Life is not as it seems,
Life is pride and personal history.
Thus it is better that one die
and that the people should live,
rather than one live
and the people should die.
Oscar Zeta Acosta, The Revolt of the Cockroach People
