The World Trade Center in Divine Hands...

In art class at Victory Christian School in 2001, the young people were asked to draw something regarding the terrorist actions in New York. This was part of their own healing. This was what my son Noel drew... He was 15 years old then.

Noel is now 18 and currently attending Oxford College of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He plans to major in theology/psychology and minor in art. We ARE extremely pleased & proud of him. He is now getting 4 hours of art studio time each week at college. I hope to see great things come of this. He is taking a full load at college (17 hours) and also works 15-20 hours each week off campus to help pay for his school expenses. We struggle to provide the best education opportunities for him & his sister.
