In our times, people often look at the past and wonder if the ones that learned in it were same. They don"t realize we are making the same mistake in our own times. I"m glad there are artists who are showing us that.

The contrast is very powerull, and everything makes sense. It takes a lot of courage and strength to show what is shoen in this exposition. To be able to show such personal humanity and at the same time such keen perspective of the world of war today is very overwhelming and at the same time admirable. You"re an example.

The exhibit is about to choose war over peace. War I think is to handle a conflict in a visions way. Peace I think is to handle a conflict with out doint something to hurt people in general.

Today"s experience shook my soul. It let me w/ so many different emotions. Most of all, I left here knowing that peace is the way. We must instill this in our children because children are not born to hate, but raised to hate.

Your exhibit is full of emotional expression of what war brings to humanity- I can feel the anger in the colors and the forgiveness as well. The texture the bleeding colors! The suffering, the hell, the destruction. I thank you for your expression to the world from your perspective.

Huong, what good fortune I had to read is the paper and come to your exhibit! It is a visual of the words of Gandhi. Your agony of recall has borne a most meaningful exhibit.

The war room brought tears to my eyes & sadness to my heart. I am of the Vietnam generation & fear the present war for my own two sons. I wanted to sweep you up in my arms & take away the pain, so powerful- I’m sorry I missed meeting you. John walked me through your life’s work and all I can say is how happy I am that you found love & happiness. No one should go through such pain- But god watches out & brings you home to peace. As a fellow artist, I salute you- I am awed, I am speechless, I am moved beyond words.

What an explosion of emotion, texture, pain, and beauty! How amazing of a body of work is assembled in this gallery! At first, I was drawn in by the colors and composition, but drawn in further by the most important of subjects- Peace. It is so wonderful to see an artist fully on purpose in this life, to see such beauty and triumph of spirit. I thank you for allowing me the opportunity to partake in this magic. So inspiring is the exhibit, you want to run from the building exulting the virtues of peace and love. My very best wishes in all that you undertake. Thank you Thank you. Peace on earth xoxo
