Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Embarrassed to say that, after a day of cutting out letters by hand using scissors mostly, and an exacto knife, for a nine foot wide banner with text in English, French & Hebrew, the first thing I saw about this article was the striking typeface! Sanity and perspective will no doubt return soon and then I will be glad you posted this for the right reasons.

This is an excellent essay! Thanks for sharing, Beth.
