  •  Powerful Story...A Great Help to Others. (11+ / 0-)

    Unfortunately, for me, you are such a good writer that I think I personally experienced everything you went through, if only momentarily.  

    I wish your story could be read by the (probably) millions of kids and young people who are living the same experiences you did.  It could give them the power to protest, loudly, so people around them would have to hear.  

    I know the process would be terribly hard, but have you thought about writing a book for children based on your own life?  It could be the spark to save many emotional lives.

    Convict Bush, Cheney and their torture cabal. Support universal health care,unions, WikiLeaks and Occupy Wall Street! Time for a totally new, democratic economic system. Turn the corporations into worker cooperatives!

      This is the 1st time I have ever put it in print...not even in a letter...I have talked about it...but it was strange for me...writing it and than reading it...

      Placing it on my blog and than here...It meant more to me than I ever would of thought it would...

      My youngest son made the same suggestion you did about a children's book...It would be as you said something very hard to do as I know the importance of what our children read...but it is something worth thinking about...
