Walter, I worked with a young lady from Hong Kong a few years ago who was in the US on a temporary work visa. She was kind and beautiful in every way. She seemed to enjoy being here but told me that people from Hong Kong were afraid to visit the US because they view it as a very violent country. It is such a shame we are seen that way from people in other parts of the world. Strong, thought provoking write.

Share your pain. Grew up in 50'Hope you enjoy the soup. Ethnicity not important here. All just poets with colourful souls. Was President Lions's club same thing. Also Toastmasters. Grew up in 50's and 60'S here in Kiwi Land. Big news if we had a murder once in two months. Now close to 1 a day. Strong communities our only hope. The Power of three. Stay free. Keep your message alive and don't give up hope. Well written. No words that blame or shame just words of peace for all. David in NZ
