I have never done this before, writing to the president of the United States and I thought I would share it with you.

I certainly hope that this is the dawn of a government of integrity and ethical conduct. One that can rise above the ashes of the former administration and shine in the light of day and show the word that we are the leader that we say we are. One that can be compassionate to the weak and show, but not use indiscriminately our strength.
A couple of quotes that I hold dear follow;
" The significant problems we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them."
" The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing."
I know that your office is inundated with many thoughts and wishes and this is but a grain of sand in the mix of e-mails that have been sent, but I felt compelled to write for the first time. It all starts at the top with the selection of the ones who will carry out your agenda to repair and rebuild this great country and take it to higher heights than ever before imagined. This country has been lost in the darkness of despair, shown to be a paper tiger to the world. We need to again be proud to be Americans, not to feel the need to apologize for being a citizen.
Thank you for your time.
Thank you for reading this email.
