The column in Friday’s July 26 edition by James Neal illustrated the need to respect science.

This is a national and international issue.

As an artist and a quilter, I am spending my time, talent and resources on the value of science.

Currently, I am finishing a quilt for my grandson Noah Allen, who is a science professional in the veterinarian lab at Oklahoma State University.

It is a design I found in a book from the Baghdad art museum in Iraq. The pattern represents an ax slicing the clouds to bring rain. Leonardo da Vinci said that “all life comes from water.”

Noah grew up in Enid. He helped establish Leonardo’s Children’s Museum’s outdoor play area.

So this quilt will remind Noah of his childhood in Enid, his professionalism in science and his grandmother’s desire to produce a work of art.

There is no surprise that arts and sciences are grouped together in our educational institutions.

These values should direct our votes at the ballot box come Election Day.
