A couple of requests

Dear George:

Today it was finally decided who would be our president for the next four years. I'm not happy its you, but I will make an effort to support you and the best interests of our country for the next four years.

But I do have a couple of requests:

First, please try to work with the Democratic members of Congress. We all have to live together and ultimately we all want the same thing: health, safety, happiness and stability for our families and our country. Please listen to the Democrats, they have some good ideas and it would do this country a world of good to realize that both sides have our best interests at heart, we just go about it a little differently. And please tell Cheney to stop calling anyone who doesn't believe what he does "un-American."

Second, please do not appoint Supreme Court justices who will overturn Roe v. Wade. This is an imperatively important piece of legislation for women - and although I can and do understand the viewpoints of those who oppose it the government does not have the right to choose what I do with MY body. And although some may say its not a good argument, if abortions were made illegal, they WOULD HAPPEN ANYWAY. Just not in safe, clean clinics by qualified doctors but in places where we have no way of regulating the quality of care they receive. 20 million women die across the world annually because of botched abortions in countries where they are illegal. And if you want to lower the abortion rate, make birth control cheap or free and readily available to ALL women, not just those who can afford health insurance because 45 million people in this country can't.

Third, the "go it alone" policy in foreign affairs is not productive. I would never give up America's right to defend itself to someone else but I do understand the importance of being respected in the world. America has a fantastic opportunity to be model of good citizenship and kindness to other countries. Bullying is not the answer.

Fourth, please do not try and push your religion onto other people. I am a Christian too but I do not see that the President of the United States should try to be a religious leader for the country, its not part of the job description. We live with people of many different faiths - there's a reason the founding fathers argued for the separation of church and state. Let's leave it that way.

And finally, please be willing to admit your mistakes when they happen. No one's perfect and its not a sign of weakness to consider new information and opinions, then adjust your course of action. Take off your blinders and listen to those around you, no matter what political party, state, background they come from. There ARE other ways of doing things that work if we're just willing to listen.

With that, I hope you do well. Thank you for listening.

Dear George:

I am a Democrat, a woman, wife and mother of two small children. I have not agreed with the way you have run this country in the past three years, but I do have faith. Faith that you will look within yourself to make this country what I know it can be...UNITED.

This country was founded on a very basic ideal, we are all the same in the eyes of God, and no man should ever feel more righteous. We all have so much healing and growing to do together, I wish that we could bottle the feelings of togetherness and unity and heartfelt compassion we all had for one another regardless of race after September 11th. I want my children to have the chance to grow up in a world that can find some common ground, a more peaceful and loving world, and I believe in my heart of hearts that this is possible.

I know how hard it must be to be in a position like yours, to have people question your motives and values, and how hard it is to admit when you have made mistakes. I think you have made mistakes, but I don't think it is too late for you to bring this country back together. We can all be stubborn, we can choose to not meet each other half way, but where would that leave us? we would be no better than the countries we try to be role models for.

We are a country filled with intelligent, caring, diverse and colorful people who want to be accepted and safe. We should forget about the titles and finger pointing at this point, forget about who's a Democrat and Republican and find a way to make all people of this great country to feel like patriots. My hopes and dreams for my family and all the families of this nation lie in your hands, and all I can do is pray for you to do the right thing and make the right choices that will benefit this country not certain individuals.

I'll end this letter with a final thought..."Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" please take this to heart and let it guide you. Thank you Mr. President for your time and may God bless and watch over you and your family.
