Simple, Elegant, Truthful - Twist of the Knife Edition

Poet Sharon Olds to First Lady Laura Bush:

I tried to see my way clear to attend the festival in order to bear witness--as an American who loves her country and its principles and its writing--against this undeclared and devastating war.

But I could not face the idea of breaking bread with you.

...Not when our nation is so broken.

Hat tip to GD Frogsdong.
