Dear Mom
A mother enters her daughter's bedroom and sees a letter on the wall over the bed.

With the worst premonition, she reads it, with trembling hands:

"It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm telling you that I eloped
with my new boyfriend.

I found real passion and he is so nice, with all his piercing and tattoos and his big motorcycle.

But is not only that Mom, I'm pregnant and Ahmed said that we will very happy in his trailer in the woods.

He wants to have
many more children with me and that's one of my dreams.

I've learned that marijuana
doesn't hurt anyone and he'll be growing it for us and his friends, who are providing us with all the cocaine and ecstasy we may want.

In the meantime, we'll pray for the science to
find the AIDS cure, for Ahmed to get better, he deserves it.

Don't worry Mom, I'm 15 years old now
and I know how to take care of myself.

Someday I'll visit for you to know your grandchildren.

Your daughter,



Mom, it's not true. I'm at the neighbor's house. I just wanted to show you that there are worst this in life than my report card that's in the desk drawer. "
