Subject: RE: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
Hi, Rick. It's Maryanne here. I just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks for all you've done. I meant to write sooner, but I wanted to wait until I got through this evening. I played at an open mic tonight, and I ended my set with Voices of Struggle. Everybody liked it, and I feel like you were there helping me get through it. I nailed all the lyrics and I didn't even mess up on the guitar part. Thanks for leaving us such a great song. I started learning it just about the time that Bush invaded Iraq and it gave me an outlet for my anger and frustration. I knew I had to stick my neck out and express myself. Your words made it a lot easier. Anyway, you've touched more people than you could ever imagine. Thanks again,

Maryanne
