SYMBOLS
IN WORLD WAR II, A RAISED HAND WITH TWO FINGERS HELD HIGH MEANT ‘VICTORY’ IN WAR.  TWENTY YEARS LATER, THE SAME SIGN MEANT ‘PEACE’, NOT WAR.
THE SWASTIKA WAS ORIGINALLY A SYMBOL OF DIVINITY AND SPIRITUALITY IN HINDUISM, BUDDHISM AND JAINISM.  
HUNDREDS OF YEARS LATER 
IT BECAME A SYMBOL OF 
WAR AND GENOCIDE.
TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO, THE CROSS WAS THE SYMBOL AN ENEMY OF THE STATE, A
 CRIMINAL WORTHY OF EXECUTION.  HUNDREDS OF YEARS LATER, IT BECAME THE SYMBOL OF A MAJOR WORLD RELIGION.
AS TIMES CHANGE, VALUES CHANGE.  WHAT IF, IN ONE THOUSAND YEARS, THE CROSS BECOMES A SYMBOL OF SUPPRESSION AND HATRED AND VIOLENCE?

IT CAN’T HAPPEN, RIGHT?!

BUT AS WE SAW ABOVE, IT HAPPENED TO THE HINDUS AND BUDDHISTS...NOT SO LONG AGO.

BUT THAT HAPPENS ONLY TO OLDEN GODS.
NOT TO TODAY’S GOD, RIGHT?
