Hi, My name is Andre Folkes Above is my selected image for The Megan Project.
Initially i was puzzled as to what image i wanted to use to for this project. Making a purchase in the bookstore i figured why not use something that is exchanged everyday here on campus? I decided to take a picture of a five dollar bill. More specifically, the section of the five dollar bill which reads “IN GOD WE TRUST” just above the Lincoln Memorial. I chose this because i found it interesting how even something like our currency is represented by “GOD” on the bills. Money is what makes the world function and could continue to function without the message on our currency. Despite this we still implement it. This to me symbolizes how much of a role a higher power actually plays in the lives of people enough to involve it on currency.
