First Place?!?! Crazy!

Well I had totally forgotten about the Abortion Poem I had entered into the competition. Last night as i was lying in bed sick, after being in bad all day, my mom brought me a mail package and I had no clue who it was from. Turns out it was from the Right to Life Center, and Inside I found....a 1st place certificate and ribbon, a coupon for DQ, comments from 4 different judges along with the scores they all gave me, and a precious hands pin, It made me really excited. I didn't think I would even come in third..or close to that! I'm glad that my poem touched a few people...someday I wish all of America could be touched and band abortion forever. I really want to make a difference, like we all should. If we can't change the world...we can try to change one heart at a time. But anyways... a special thanks to my math teacher who informed me a day before about the competition...and that night before at like 11pm I added about 200-250 words to the poem..and then turned it into her the next day..and she took care of the rest. Thank you!.

My poem....(in case you'd like to read it)...is in my post section for Febuary under: A Mother Mistaken...Another Life Taken. (tell me what you think!)
