So from the National Writing Project, I picked the twin brothers Al Mills and Nnamdi Chukwuocha.  They each wrote a poem about why they write, and.... both poems were absolutely beautiful.  I teared up a bit for both, they were just that moving.  True, neither used big words, or other fancy bits of language, but I feel like that's what made it better for me.  It was very heart-felt, but conversational.  It felt personal, and I feel like that's why their writings moved me they way they did.  they both discussed the way that people are easily screwed over where they're from, and the intentions are usually innocent to begin with.
