Life or Meth

The idea we had in mind was to choose which way you want to spend your life, to make a decision of either living, or letting the dark side of things, and even death, take over. We ended up painting an old shed on the farm our family owns. It's old and faded, with flaking white paint. Just perfect for an anti-meth mural. We worked with very little supplies, (handful of leftover paints, few old brushes, a borrowed ladder, etc.) but were very pleased with the outcome. It's visible from a very popular highway, and we think our message and colors stand out very well. The upper part of the shed says, "Weigh Your Options" and below that is a "Grim Reaper" with his sickle, and dangling from it is a sign that reads, "Life or Meth". Along the side of the shed (the side facing the road directly) we painted in bright red letters, "Not Even Once". I suppose if we had to explain our message we would say, "Weigh your options. You can choose to live, or you can choose to do meth. You can not do both."
