COMMUNITY VOICE: Every Penny Counts

COMMUNITY VOICE: <br/>Every Penny Counts

Every Penny Counts

During the current economic crisis, more families than ever will be struggling with unemployment and trying to make ends meet while hoping for a better future. My piece is meant to reflect the everyday life of normal people, who may not be directly affected by the larger conflicts in the world--such as war, terrorism, or political unrest--but are deeply affected by the economic crisis, which is also beyond their control. The family of mice is my take on the metaphor "poor as a church mouse," and the cheese on top of the car represents the limited assets that the family must share.
