Being raised in a Hispanic household where religion was very prominent, I have always been exposed to many signs and symbols for “good Karma” and “peaceful living”. I chose to write about something that is in the houses of all of my relatives and it is a glass cup filled with water. This glass is used as an offering for all of those who have passed and serves as a tribute for eternal peace. This is something that I have grown up seeing my grandmother do and it just became something very normal in our family. The glass is placed on a table where you would normally have other religious symbols such as a cross, and the water is changed ever so often. This is something that is so simple, but yet carries a much deeper meaning and that is why I thought it was a perfect representation for this project.
