  • Apr 25 2013: Writing, overcome by strong feelings about a topic can be frustrating.
    Finding the words becomes embarrassingly tough.
    Here is an example of writing to a newspaper when overcome.

    WAR again?
    Has our Government lost it's mind again?
    Does the Media still insist on Backing the Hawks of War?
    Have we as a People, forgotten our compassion for peace?

    Has America become such that
    the prisoners at GITMO
    Riot in Despair?

    Are we LOST?
    ===
    Expressing wonderment seems to work the best when in the moment.
    Looking back when applying an edit, may not show the same intensity.
    Am I making sense?
