Give a try at writing something emotional and post it in the comments section. (50-150 words)

I love comments, almost as much as I love clicks, so after you pass this on to your Facebook and Twitter pals remember to tell me what you think. If you’re not already, please follow me @jeancogdell on Twitter or jean.cogdell on Facebook!
