Powerfully done. That kind of superhero/heroine is definitely the best.

Hi Julie -

Love it! I agree - and those people you write of are also superheroes/oines to me.

They are the folks who work hard to keep themselves honest and true, and follow the rules, but ask a lot of good questions along the way. You are one of them with simply the writing of this poem - done with such passion and admiration.

Bravo!

Julie,

Right back atcha, babe! I've always said I'd walk through fire for my daughter and meant it. And like Dina said, half of the strength comes from the questions... questioning authority, questioning injustice, speaking up even when it's the unpopular opinion.

Thank you for a highly charged poem! Amy

Jae Rose
