I am one in a Million!
I'm attending the Million MOM March in Washington DC May 14,2000 on sensible gun control
I live in Maryland and I know most of you are far away and its hard to get there..
But I would still like you to be there!..
So... what I'm proposing here is for you to do what you do so well, write a poem on this subject.
There will be a million MOM's there who have lost a love one to gun's, or like myself, just sick of being scared of loosing someone to a single bullet, and sick of sensible gun law's being passed over
This is our chance to yell ENOUGH is ENOUGH!
I've got a big mouth and good lungs... so I'll yell loud for all of you!!
I would like to take your poems with me, if you care to share in the experience, it would be a kind thing for all of you to do to reach out for this cause, and to the one's who have lost....
I would include copyright date and E-mail address so if your words reach one , they can contact you!
I read on the Tapestry at http://www.millionmommarch.com something from and ER nurse that sums it up for me....
She said she's treated many of gunshot victims, but not one who was shot by a home owner!
And Ruth, I'd love for you to write another if you like to, but I'd really love it if you would allow me to take the one you wrote "Fourteen Children"
Please Send All Poems to this E-mail Address in E-mail form
I'm one in a million how about you?
Peace to you and your's
If with pen in hand I've made you think
I've not wasted one drop of ink
