I really like this. I don't know who you addressed it to but it's something that fits perfectly to America as a whole and the current stand that culture has reached. :) Read it that way and I think you'll agree with me. Anyway good writing!
I really like the ending..the rest seems to need a little something to balance it with the impact of the last part but that just what I think..I can also relate to this coz i've seen people close to me lose themselves because being hurt..nice
