Some months ago, I mailed letters to President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sensing a need for caution, I kept the existence of these letters off my blog. I have reason to believe President Trump and Attorney General Sessions were prevented from receiving these letters after I confirmed delivery.
As the cause is urgent, I am now going public with my request, using my blog and twitter. Unusual times call for unusual and bold action. Ordinary Americans like myself are rising up to accomplish extraordinary things. History is made, in many cases, one blog, one letter, one prayer, one patriot at a time.
Dear. Mr. President,
It is my sincere hope that over the next eight years you will come to be known as the President who did indeed make America great again. I have no doubt in your ability to do so despite the tremendous opposition you face.
I was listening intently from my home state of Florida as you announced your candidacy. What you said, and how you said it, stirred me deeply. As you spoke, I knew it was time we elected a successful businessman and not another attorney to be the next President of this great, unruly republic.
And my how unruly we have become! But that fact is not the point of this letter.
“What truly matters is not what party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people. January 20, 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.”
“The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now.”
Those are your words, Mr. President. I read them in an article by author and blogger John D. Trudel. I am writing today, asking you to exercise your authority as President of the United States to stand by them.
My request is simple: I ask to be vetted, then given permission to begin ongoing correspondence with one death row inmate who is currently silenced under unjustified Special Administrative Measures, convicted of a crime he did not commit.
I ask, with your permission, to be an ambassador of hope for this young man.
Granting this request could create an opportunity to show the country, if not the world, in a most tangible way, that you are not the muslim-hating fascist many wrongly, stubbornly believe you to be.
The envelopes I sent by mail contained two additional letters. Those letters became the basis for my blog. They explain who I am and what I care about in the clearest of terms.
I hope you will be curious enough to read them. They have been forwarded to your Twitter feed.
The response I received when I first sent them to the Obama administration was typical and disappointing. I detailed this response in my second blog post. I hold great hope for a better outcome this time.
In conclusion, Mr. President, I thank you most humbly for your time and most sincerely for your service to our country.
My full contact information is contained in the original documents.
