although they cannot reach it.” However, the exhibit is sparking some controversy. After the opening, prisoners were no longer allowed to release their art to lawyers or relatives. The U.S. Government is now saying art
created in the prison belongs solely to the U.S. Government. Maj. Ben Sakrisson, a spokesperson for the Pentagon, wrote an email saying: “items
produced by detainees at Guantánamo Bay remain the property of the U.S. government.”
Brene Brown once said, “Creativity is the way I share my soul with the world.” Art is seen as an outlet and a form of communication by many. By preventing the art from leaving the prison grounds, the government is showing they do not want the world to see how inmates view themselves and the world they leave. It may soon lead to more people believing they have something to hide.

Soon after, I started spotting dead birds on the side of the road. A friend told me her Angel Fish died; another one in the tank developed a strange growth.
