Salutations  Everyone,

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  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
Love Tori

 If with pen in hand I've made you think
I've not wasted one drop of ink

Good luck on the march.  Hope it makes a difference. Not sure what the answers are when improper gun handling is just one example of how irresponsible people can be when it comes to personal, family, or public safety.
Finding a balance between maintaining our freedoms and protecting innocent victums is a difficult task for sure.
This issue brings out politics at its best (or worst). Makes for great rhetoric but no solid action.
Gun safety and drunk much suffering have these two issues caused????
~~~now jumping off my soap box~~~~~~
Will make an effort to write a poem.
Best regards,
