My Letter to the President

Sir, the 50 year commemoration of the Edmund Pettus Bridge walk for voting rights was one of the most moving events I have ever witnessed. The speech that you gave was so moving I was reduced to tears.

The Republican obstructionist Congress is SHAMEFUL in its treatment of our Chief Executive. They have insulted you, been rude and dismissive to you while they advocate for policies to ensure our president fail. But, Mr. President, you have NOT failed despite the unbridled recklessness of a Congress that has gone racist insane.

Just so my stats are clear I am a white Jewish woman who loves you and wishes you could run for another term with a Congress that is human and not bought by corporate interests. You, Mr. President, are amazing for keeping your composure under tremendous stress and I aver even treason by a Republican controlled Congress that goes behind your back to work against our nation and a Congress that pays lip service to loving the nation but sows only discord and division. There are millions who love and support what you do because your policies are based on thoughtful reason and intelligence.

The picture of you walking down the Pettus bridge holding Congressman Lewis's hand and the hand of elderly woman in a wheelchair on the other side of you, is on my desktop and I will keep it there.

NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER GIVE IN TO REPUBLICAN CONGRESSIONAL TREASONOUS DISCORD AND KNOW THERE ARE MILLIONS WHO THINK AND FEEL AS I DO.
