|Windows and Doors Stencil Available on Society6|
With the horrific bombings and shootings in Paris last week, fear-mongering is running rampant - politicians and ordinary people are reacting in anger, and urging closing off, shutting down, turning in. But bombs and hatred will never win against terrorists. People turn to violence when they have no hope, no options. The true weapons against terrorism are education, employment, hope, compassion and love. We need MORE love, not more fear.

As an artist, my response is to make art and thus these images in my art journal. Open doors. Think of "others" as the same as me, with the same hopes, dreams and fears. Think of my ancestors who were rejected and shunned because they were different.
The worst thing these attacks can do is close our hearts and take away our humanity. Don't let that happen.
Kim Geiser created this beautiful coloring page as a free gift and plea to "Please Love More." As she says, "Please share, print, use this picture and allow it to remind us to use our powers for good. "
