Historical Context:
"Subliminal positive images of strength stay in our psyche and become part of our persona causing a ripple effect of emotion and shaping the way in which we respond to the world around us. It is imperative today that our communities see positive images to stimulate their minds and exude confidence, self esteem and pride." - Paul Collins
