This medal was inspired by a news item about former football player Pat Tillman who volunteered for the military and then was killed in Afghanistan by “friendly fire” in 2004. At first I thought mostly about his family and how they felt betrayed because they were lied to about the circumstances of their son’s death until after the high profile funeral was over. Eventually this led to thoughts about the language of war and how it is designed to calm or incite depending on the situation. “Friendly Fire” is a term that has been in use for some time to distinguish the harm or loss caused by other than enemy fire. When used to describe a casualty, however, it hardly seems proper to use the word “friendly”. Certainly I think of other things when I hear that word. If we could hear the real meanings behind the language used by the media and the military, we would not hear “friendly fire” but instead, “a grievous accident involving one’s own comrade ”. We would not hear the word “troops” but rather “men and women who have families and loved ones depending on them.” The more we allow ourselves to be lulled by innocuous sounding euphemisms, the less we experience moral anguish or indignation over the loss of brave and idealistic Americans, not to mention civilians of other nations.
I chose the Purple Heart as a departure point for this piece because it is a recognizable emblem, even to those who have never served in the military. To those of you who have earned a purple heart, I hold you in the highest respect. I salute you and those who have sacrificed life and limb to protect our freedoms…including the artistic freedom that I used to create this piece.
I believe the real value of artists in our in our culture to be to mirror the glories and foibles of human existence without the constraints of everyday propriety. Through artistic expression, we should hope to be prompted to see ourselves and our society in a clearer light.
