By Annie I read about a country where baby girls are tossed into a river Its just because they are girls This made my soul shiver. I read about a country where children of 4 and 5 are sold to factories Its because that is how their parents will survive This made my soul ache. I read about a country where children dodge bombs to get to the ration lines Its because they live in a state of war It made my soul weep I read about a country where the babies go blind before they can speak Its because they miss one vitamin This made my soul grieve I read about a country where thousands of children are born with a horrible disease Its because their mothers don't know how to not drink It made my soul churn in disbelief. I live in a country that has no war, that has few bombs, that has vitamins to help us see. Its because it is a great country It's a country where pregnant women still drink.
