A Letter To President Obama
Thank You President Obama
To The Honorable President Barack Obama:
First and foremost I want to thank you for allowing me the honor, by your courage to run for the Office of President Of The United States, to see the election of our first black president. As I listened to you over the months leading to the election and the very moving acceptance speech you so eloquently spoke, I knew that there was hope for a better future for my children and future generations. In observing your work in the first year of your presidency I know in my heart I was right.
The most touching thing I have been priviledged to enjoy was the letter to your daughters, explaining why you had to be away on the campagian trail, missing very important time with them and your beautiful wife. At the same time you explained that a change was needed in America to ensure that their future and the futures of many others, the poor, the broken, and the downtrodden would have the same chance to succeed in their search for the American dream as the rich and famous. It is refreshing to see someone in a position of power be such a positive role model, as a person but more importantly as a husband and father.
Your respect and dignity in dealing with foreign affairs with other countries, I feel is returning the United States to the honorable position we have always held in the eyes of other nations. Your actions have shown that you are able to show compromise, strength, and at the same time be firm in the things that are important to keeping America strong. I feel that we are once again earning the trust and backing of our allies and other countries.
You have endured much lashback for the healthcare reform bill, please do not let the opinon of a few grumblers stop you in your efforts to do what is sorely needed for the well being of the majority. I am 49 and disabled. Your bill has enabled me to recieve the care that I so desperately need. The pre-existing condition clause saved a newborn infants life here in Dallas days after it was passed. Many of us have worked our whole lives only to barely survive on the disability benefits we receive when illness cuts us down at an early age. Many have complained that they should not have to pay our medical bills since they are working, they seem to forget that we also worked for many years and contributed to the system that is now keeping many of us in dire poverty. healthcare reform was badly needed and the bill you managed to get passed has helped many ...thank you.
The last thing I would like to thank you for is giving my children and so many others like them the ability to dream and know that they can become any thing they wish to be if they study hard, persist and never give up on their dreams. That no matter what their race, religion, or background they can aspire to greatness.
So in closing President Obama, Thank you for a wonderful, refreshing change in this your first year as our President. With all due honor and respect, I am looking forward to your second term and all of the wonderful things I forsee for this great nation under your guidance.
Good luck and Godspeed...may he bless and keep you and your family as you take the journey of bringing our country back to the being the great nation we have always been and our forefathers aspired us to be.
