52 Letters Week 22


I feel extremely nervous writing this letter...

I have vacillated for months...

about when to send your letter.

I knew it had to be soon...

It may already be too late.

I created this image with the cherry blossoms...

I was reminded of the White House.

I took it as a sign.

I cried when you won the Democratic nomination,

I cried even more when you were inagurated.

Some day your terms as President and First Lady will be recognized

and appreciated

as a historical turning point

by ALL Americans---

not just some of us.

Thank you so very much for everything you both have done...

Educated, intelligent, empathetic, strong, and dedicated leaders

are very rare.

Thank you for setting a new standard.

While I am terrified of the potential outcome of this election,

I just hope and pray...

that the seeds of change you have sewn

take root

and silence

the fear mongering,

hate,

and prejudice.

I have to hope that we will be better...

We must be better.

We must continue to progress,

rather than backslide into the 1950's.

Please keep spreading hope and change.

Maybe someday I'll live to see

a Native American or Hispanic president.

Better yet,

a woman Native American president!

This is what you have done.

Made other minorities believe it IS possible.
