    Wow! I love vandalism with a powerful message....Wonder if that qoute is taken from somewhere....either way its great!

    I'm absolutely fascinated by strong graffiti like this. Great image!

    Once, in Baltimore (I used to live there), I found a boarded up project house. On one of the boards was spray painted "[some name] R.I.P., see you in hell dog".

    Looks stupid in words like this, but it was emotionally provocative when I saw it. I tried photographing it but missed it. Came out too faint.

    The quote is from Maggie Kuhn, the founder of the Gray Panthers. It's my favorite.

    The whole quote is:

    "Stand before the people you fear and speak your mind - even if your voice shakes. When you least expect it, someone may actually listen to what you have to say."

    Thanks for the comments and faves, everyone!
    pinks, I'm pretty sure you're my only buddy named pinks. :)

    Thanks, podolux!

    Jacob, it is powerful and awesome, isn't it? I saw while driving by and circled back around to shoot it.

    Dave, it's too bad it didn't turn out, I would have liked to see it.

    Thank you, jenny, for the quote information.

    And thanks, Whatfoibles. Good to see you again!

    Since everyones house in New Orleans was tagged people are begining to use them as Billboards, is this way.

    I am not a fan of graffitti but this type of message sending makes me happy happy happy.
