Dear President Obama,

I humbly make but one simple request of you for as long as you may be in office: Tell us the truth.  We have been lied to for years by politicians on both sides of the aisle.  We have been ruled by a government that has forgotten the “by the people…” portion of the program, and an exclusive one at that.  They have withheld information in order to manipulate the public for generations, and we have had enough. 

Okay, maybe two requests: Don’t let us off the hook.  We have been treated like children for so long that we now behave in childish ways.  We are spoiled and lazy.  We have ignored our civic responsibilities for a good game of Wii bowling.  Don’t allow us to raise another generation devoid of a sense of civic duty.  Help us to put aside our differences, shake hands, and make this a country we can all believe in, where we are ALL included.  Be the man we need you to be.

One Nation, One Voice

“A nation is is formed by the willingness of each of us to share in the responsibility for upholding the common good.  Let each person do his or her part.  If one citizen is unwilling to participate, all of us are going to suffer.  For the American idea, though it is shared by all of us, is realized by each one of us.”  Barbara Jordan

President Obama seems determined to renew the American spirit and remind us that we are one nation, regardless of politics, religion, race, gender, or sexuality.  We are only as strong as we are unified.  Divided, we are nothing.  Whether you voted for him or now, it is time to remember where you come from.
