[PureInsight.org] [Author's Note: China's
president Hu Jintao will meet with U.S. President George W. Bush in
Washington, DC on Thursday April 20. Human rights in China are
abominable, so this poem was written to ask Bush to make human rights
his top issue in any discussions with Hu Jintao. I have emailed and
faxed the poem to the president. I encourage you to do the same and
sign your name, or put your own thoughts in writing and send them.

A Letter to President Bush

Dear President Bush, what do we fight for?

What should we think of all the death and war?

I hope it is not for greed that we fight,

I hope it's for justice and what is right,

So freedom and rights will see a new age,

So goodness and light will rule the world's stage,  

So Communists and terrorists will see,

They have no friends in the Land of the Free.

When you meet with China's president soon,

Remember the sight of that quiet moon,

That our tired Revolution soldiers knew,

While British forces were huge, and they few,

To their Freedom "under God" they held strong,

Today we watch the suppressed Falun Gong,

Who are killed for their organs and beliefs...

I can almost hear George Washington's grief.

Our nation's great story continues now,

So take a stand when you meet Hu Jintao.
