Don't Laugh At Me:


I'm a little boy with glasses, the one they call a geek
a little girl who never smiles cuz I got braces on my teeth
and I know how it feels to cry myself to sleep

I am that
kid on every playground, whose always chosen last
a single teenage mother trying to overcome her past
You don’t have to be my friend if it's too much to ask

Don't laugh at me, don't call me names
Don't get your pleasure from my pain
In God's eyes we're all the same
some day we'll all have perfect Wings
Don’t laugh at me

I'm a cripple on the corner
You pass me on the street
I wouldn't be out here begging if I had enough to eat
and don't think I don’t notice that our eyes never meet
I lost my wife and little boy when someone crossed that yellow line
The day we layed'em in the ground was the day I lost my mind
Right now I'm down to holding this little cardboard sign

Don't laugh at me, Don't call me names
Don't get your pleasure from my pain
In God's eyes we're all the same
Someday we'll all have perfect wings
Don’t laugh at me

I'm Fat, I'm thin
I'm Short, I'm tall
I'm deaf, I'm blind
Hey aren't we all

Don't laugh at me, Don't call me names
Don't get your pleasure from my pain
In God's eyes we're all the same
Someday we'll all have perfect wings
Don't laugh at me

Darfur
"The situation in Darfur has worsened dramatically in the past two days. Sudanese army troops, against their commitments to the U.N., have been denying humanitarian access to refugees (internally displaced persons) and forcibly relocating them.

A story in Thursday's Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A23520-2004Nov3.html) describes the situation and quotes the U.N. envoy to Sudan as saying there were "strong indications that war crimes and crimes against humanity have occurred in Darfur on a large and systematic scale."

To express your concern, you may call the Sudanese mission to the United Nations (212-573-6033) in New York to urge that international access to the camps be restored and that no involuntary relocation of civilians take place.

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan can be reached by fax at 212-963-3511.

You can send email to:

Sudanese Embassy, info@sudanembassy.org
Sudanese mission to the U.N., sudan@un.int
President George W. Bush, president@whitehouse.gov "
