The Mother Letters

Someone linked me to this great project called The Mother Letter Project

I think I might write a letter and submit it. Mine will be to a mother who wants to bring her child to the emergency room.

How honest shall I be?

I'm new to your blog but my first thought was...Oh yes!!! yes yes yes...write and be honest VERY VERY honest, I'll do the same!...but I'm a little to cynical to be objective and now that I read about the project it's supported to be encouraging...I'm not that good of a writer, but maybe you can come up with something encouraging, supportive and honest?

PLEASE WRITE THIS LETTER!

I would be so excited to get this kind of a letter. I actually attempted to have a friend write a similar letter for the project... I won't jade you with the perspective I requested, but I would love to receive something from you. Thanks.

Be honest, but keep the language nice. In other words, keep the four letter words out. Some of us have recently found ourselves finding it over-used and wishing that folks could express their frustration with humanity's stupidity in creative ways. I was looking forward to reading your blog, but decided it was just too much. A well-placed damn here and there is okay (as a Bible college professor of mine used to say), but too often and it gets old.
