Our democracy

In an assignment for my English class, I was assigned with taking a photo and saying what it means to me.

By Sequoia A. from Eureka High School in California

This photo demonstrates my perception of our democracy because it shows the contrast of our citizens. There are waves crashing like ideas clash in real life. Our democracy is a constant rise and fall of the ocean, a give and take, a compromise. Our democracy will never go without the constant crash and fall of waves, because we will always fight for what we believe in. There are sometimes points of extreme disagreement and crashing waves, but when the tide rolls out, all seems to be well.

Our Democracy

The Our Democracy Education Project is a partnership with the National Writing Project and PhotoWings. PhotoWings' mission is to help photography to be better understood, created, utilized, seen, and saved. The project is also supported by the National Geographic Society and Catchlight, and explores the question, “What does democracy look like?” through the creation of a multimedia record of the state of local, everyday democracy today.
