Letter to the president

My dearest president:

What you wrote on (the Fourth of July) touched my heart on so many levels.

I have always dreamed of a world where people will see each other as brothers and sisters, band together in equality, one that would celebrate our differences, not exploit them.

One that would open their heart to all. Not just the few.

I believe that with you at the helm, this dream is much closer than ever before.

I know it can get tough, but we need you to keep reminding us of how great a people we are, remind us of our bravery and that fear is only a stumbling stone and one we must walk over. It has been my observation, that we, as a country (perhaps because we are fairly young), tend to react as children, We follow when we shouldn't, we fear when there is no need.

On the other turn - with the right encouragement - we can fly.

I know this is a huge burden and not one that a person should have to bear alone, but as a leader of this country and one I am sure you love, you have to know this is true.

We have been pushed down for far too long. We need not to get wary and continue the fight for personal freedom from oppression, fear, to see the reality of strength in our own character and in our own worth. You were chosen for that.

God has provided you with the help you need for this enormous task. Know you are not alone. We are standing with you still "believing," praying the fear of a generation will fade, so the light of this hope will shine through.

I thank you again for your extraordinary heart.

Neither I, or my children or my children's children, will forget the great gift you have given us - the ability to stand in the knowledge of our own effectiveness and to know our voice spoken out in truth will move the mountains of adversity to the rivers of hope.

My best wishes and prayers to you, your family and your whole administration. Thank you, from my heart to yours.
