Peer Work

Home  >  Peer Work
By Chester Mataia

This photo tells my life story and life stories of others. How we go through life hurt, lonely, and afraid.

Can you do me a favor?

Memorize the photo. Close your eyes, and picture in your mind, a young man alone, walking down a long and narrow hallway with nowhere to go but forward. Trying to find something, or someone, tired of walking, the young man sits in the middle of that long and narrow hallway. Hoping for someone to come along. He gives up all hope and dies young and alone. Now think to yourself: What would you do in our position?
