  1. I believe this poem is original, deep and so true. Thanks for writing. At the present time too many people are busy surviving the crisis in their countries… Please keep on writing for whatever you believe in since your poems are of interest to us.

  2. Great reading, each line brilliant through word choice… makes me wonder about the number of calls and the reality of describing atrocities to an automated service.

  3. So true that news is more likely to be reported if it gets on the media bandwaggon… thus those people with the smaller voices, gentler souls, and less representation, get overlooked.

  4. the phone calls were really coming in mind today, weren’t they? I wish there always really was someone on the other end of the line to take care of all these woes… Heartspell

  5. Goodness you nailed that one. But C when don’t you???

    Hope the UN reads this so they can nail… well something

    Happy Monday

  6. I’m working my way through all the posts since I subscribed using the new subscription system. Intimidating, but I like keeping them near until I can read them. Unfortunately, that’s been quite a wait for me. ANYWAY, here I am and I love this one. Timely and sassy. Two very nice traits. Thanks for sharing it.
