“I wanted to create a work of art that focuses on mental health awareness to pay tribute to those we’ve lost to mental illness and give hope to those of us still struggling to cope. One way I cope with my own personal struggle is to have a goal for the next day. Positive forward thinking helps give me hope. I want everyone to help become a part of this work of art. If we fight together, no one fights alone. ” – Eric Hawkins
