a well-written note from a lady---
wonderful discourse of the feelings and frustrations of
millions of Americans. I'm sure there are many
more who feel like writing something like this, but just
don't. This lady keeps her cool (a lot
better than I could do if I had written
Hope you will pass
Today I read of your
administrations plan to re-define September 11 as a National
Service Day. Sir, it's time we had a talk.
During your campaign,
Americans watched as you made mockery of our tradition of
standing and crossing your heart when the Pledge of
Allegiance was spoken. You, out of four people on the
stage, were the only one not honoring our tradition.
During one of your
many speeches, Americans heard you say that you intended to
visit all 57 states. We all know that Islam, not
America , has 57 states. We noticed.
When President Bush
leaned over at Ground Zero and gently placed a flower on the
memorial, you tossed your flower onto the pile without
leaning over. We noticed.
Every time you apologized to other countries for America's position on
an issue we have wondered why you don't share our pride
in this great country. When you have heard foreign
leaders berate our country and our beliefs, you have not
defended us. We noticed.
When your pastor of 20 years damned America and said that 9/11 was "
America's chickens coming home to roost" and you
denied having heard recriminations of that nature, we
wondered how that could be. When you later
disassociated yourself from that church and pastor because
it was politically expedient to do so, we noticed.
When you announced that you would transform America , we wondered why.
With all her faults, America is the greatest country on
earth. Sir, if not for America and the people who
built her, you wouldn't be sitting in the White House
now. Prior to your election to the highest office in
this country, you were a senator from Illinois and from what
we can glean from the records available, not a remarkable
one. We noticed.
All through your campaign and even now, you have surrounded yourself with
individuals who are basically unqualified for the positions
you appointed them to. Worse than that, the majority
of them are people who, like you, bear no special affection
or respect for this country and her traditions. We
You are 6 months into your term and every morning millions of Americans
wake up to a new horror heaped on us by you. You seek to saddle
working Americans with a health care/insurance reform
package that, along with cap and trade, will bankrupt this
nation. We noticed.
We seek, by protesting, to let our representatives know that we are not
in favor of these crippling expenditures and we are labeled
"un-American", racist". We wonder how
we are supposed to let you know how frustrated we are.
You have attempted to make our protests seem isolated.
On September 11, 2001 there were no Republicans or Democrats, only
Americans. And we all grieved together and helped each
other in whatever way we could. The attack on 9/11 was
carried out because we are Americans. And we noticed.
There were many of us who prayed that as a black president you could help
unite this nation even more. In six months you have done
more to destroy this nation than anyone since 9/11.
You have failed us. We noticed.
September 11 is a day of remembrance for all Americans. You propose to
make 9/11 a "National Service Day".
While we know that you don't share our reverence for
9/11, we pray that history will report your proposal as what
it is...a disgrace.
When Americans come together again, it will be to remove you from office.
You have made a mockery of our Constitution and the office
that you hold. You have embarrassed and slighted us in
foreign visits and policy.
We have noticed all these things. We will deal with you.
