Acts of Valor was truly an amazing movie. I am amazed by what men and women of this country will do to protect people like you and I.

Being at the National cemetery is a feeling like no other. Seeing stones like this makes me terribly depressed. Just twenty years old. I would like to take this Easter not to pray but to thank all the troops who wake up everyday and do what I cannot.
hahahaha Santorum is gone. not like that was much of a competition.
Can I travel the country in this?
Andy Bell, 2012, Fear Itself, Skittles on Plywood
In the past weeks, the Trayvon Martin tragedy has captured the attention of the nation. On February 26, the unarmed black teenager was shot by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida. Martin, only 17 years old, has become a household name, along with the Skittles he was “armed with” when he was killed. The rainbow candies have become associated with innocence, and have been incorporated into a number of posters since the shooting. But the most bizarre image we’ve come across so far has been Andy Bell’s portrait of Zimmerman, made using 12,000 Skittles.
The mug shot of Zimmerman, who was arrested last week for second-degree murder, has become infamous throughout the case’s frenzied media coverage, but we’ve never seen it quite like this. The piece, entitled “Fear Itself,” is currently on view at Red Line Gallery in Denver. In an email to the Huffington Post Arts, Red Line Gallery explained: “Zimmerman’s fear directly resulted in Trayvon Martin being shot and killed. But in the end, the only thing he had to fear was a 17 year old and a bag of Skittles.”
