7. Dear understandinglife, I am mourning with you and all
the American People not only for this big disaster but also for the crumbling of your once Great Nation's values and principles.

As I was reading the words of MLK, Kennedy etc. tears started rolling down my face. The more I read, the saddest I felt.

What happened to the commitment of past American leaders toward peace and justice for all ?

Today and for the last week I could not go about my life as if nothing happened and I am angry at some Canadians who say that we can't do anything. I saw the same indifference when Bush was reelected.

Many Quebequers and Canadians don't grasp that everything happening in the once Great US of A is or will soon be affecting us too.

Even thou I would like to help in a more direct way, I am spending a lot of time at my computer sending articles and letters to friends and family members.

Hoping to raise awareness with stories about real people being treated worst than animals, stories about people being "deported" as the Acadians were deported.

Hoping to wake up people about the need to help and support each others any way we can.

Peace and thank you.
