Graffiti

July 26, 1987

This is an open letter to graffiti artists and parents.

As I was taking a walk recently, I couldn't help noticing the spray-painted graffiti on several of the buildings I went past.

It angers me that buildings are being defaced; but, I also saw something below the surface of the paint.

Artistic talent.

If this creative freedom can be channeled constructively, and all parents try and do the same with their young children, we could have another artistic revolution and graffiti-free buildings in the future.
