A different kind of writing

The summer issue of Glimmertrain mentioned a PEN campaign to write letters to the President and Supreme Court Justice of P. R. China, in support of imprisoned Tibetan writers.

The Chinese government has different priorities, and problems (like major floods), but in the run-up to the Olympics, image seems to be on their list of concerns. Writing was one small thing I could do, that many people can do. Tibetan writers are thrown in prison for writing; I can write in comfort, and did.
