HW 28: "An Open Letter to Riverbend"

Dear Riverbend,

After reading the first few of your blogs my heart broke for you, your family, and your country. I can only imagine what it must be like to have so much ripped away from you all at once. Not only do you have to worry about your life being taken, but quite literally it already has. Everything that you knew, your job, your liberty, your equality has been taken away so how much of a life does that really leave you? It is so easy for me and other Americans to sit back in the comfort of our same every day lives and to claim that we feel for you, but we really have no idea. I know there are some people in America who have had parallel experiences with everything being ripped away but we have always had the comfort of knowing that our country was seemingly indestructible, until recently that is. I can only offer you the comfort of knowing that your voice is being heard, even as far away as New England, we hear you.
