Stephen Mead's unique book of original art and poetry titled, "We Are More Than Our Wounds," is an evocative study of the human predicament told through images and text. Its aim is not only to show the universality of struggle, but that pain and conflict can also be a bridge towards healing. Each image of the heart depicted in this book serves as a graphic reminder of both individual frailty and mortality. That the heart is a muscle is not shied away from. Endurance, however, is the blood feeding the strength of this heart's chambers. Regeneration beyond scar tissue here is not only possible, but serves as a miraculous metaphor for empathy. It is only by recognizing the existence of our wounds that the responsibility of recovering from them can occur. "We Are More Than Our Wounds" ultimately celebrates this act as a means to both internal and global peace.
