Dear Brenda Hillman,

Hello, my name is Grace. I would like to tell you that I enjoyed your poem “Autumn Ritual with Hate Turned Sideways” very much. This really interested me because you spelled the word “HATE” in your poem and really expressed how that is not something that this world needs and how we need to stop all of the hate in this world. We need to stop this hatred in the world and this poem can remind me to keep positive because we need to finally have peace. I would just like to say that your poem has really touched me and made me realize that this needs to stop. Thank you very much for helping me realize this.

Sincerely yours,

West Haven, CT
