I'm a little turned off by all capitals, because though I know you're angry, writitng in all capitals is considered shouting, and I think everyone here will listen. I also think you need to go back and proofread this because you have some misspellings. I agree with a lot of your points. I think the war is stupid, our economy is still weak, the Katrina victims are still getting a bum deal, etc. I'm not sure that our government is helping out as much overseas as we are led to believe; we're the stingiest industrialized nation, but I give to every disaster relief fund I can. The stupidest thing I hear people say about out current situation is that even when told that this war is fought based upon lies, they say that Hussein is a bad guy. Well, duh, but there are genocidal nutjobs in power elsewhere, and we've not batted an eyelash. Anyway, nice write, Amy
You made some good points, good announcement, as far as a poems worth, i think it could be better. But then again, you seem more concerned peopel get the message rather than find the poetic form in it. Either way, great write.
