Arab Spring QuiltToon™ Continues to Be Viewed

It was one year ago today that my blog post featured, for the first time, “The Arab Spring Facebook Revolution” QuiltToon  pictured here.  Much to the surprise of this 68-year-old great grandmother in Toledo, Ohio, the image continues to attact viewers daily from countries around the world.  From Feb. 25, 2012 it has been viewed in 69 countries — during the last month it was viewed in 27 countries.  Of the list of dictators on the QuiltToon, only Syria’s Assad continues to try to crush his own people’s quest for freedom, killing thousands in the process.  To be sure, establishing democracy in countries long-controlled by despots will be a long and no doubt messy process.  Unfortunately more people will die, and perhaps subsequently some dictators may come to power in some countries, but I believe their rule will be short-lived.  In my view, there will be no turning back and communications technology will be one of the supports that makes the quest for democracy come to fruition.

About QuiltToonist

I'm a news junkie and have opinions about everything! I consider myself a folk artist because I have no formal art training and use the sewing skills I learned many moons ago to accomplish the fiber art I seem to have to express.
