Open Letter to Obama
The publication, The Nation, has printed an open letter to Barack Obama. That letter is now on line. To those of you who support Mr. Obama, I would urge you to sign this letter to let him know how important it is that he continue to hold fast to the core commitments which made us want to follow him from the start of his campaign.
Mr. Obama has given us HOPE. Please encourage him to continue to lead us in the same direction, rather than succumb to political pressures. Compromise in some matters is appropriate and necessary, but as stated by The Nation, what is needed here is "Change We Can Believe In". He must not back down from his original stand.
Please read this open letter, and if you feel that you can sign it perhaps you will also consider adding this request to a post on your blog so that we can reach more readers. Thank you.
