We Need A Hero

We Need a Hero-v2-Holly Wilson
We Need a Hero

This boy stands tall ready to defend his world. The airplanes representing his messages are going out into the world. These messages both large and small, some will survive and some will not go very far. The bombs represent messages that are incoming from both people and society on a daily basis. The blue bombs are just for practice and have no explosives while the white ones with a yellow ring indicate that they are highly explosive and may cause much destruction.
