A letter to the President

My last issue of Citizen encouraged readers to send letters of appreciation to President Bush. I thought this would be a great activity for Kylen this week. I also composed my own letter:

Happy Belated President’s Day! You fill the shoes of some great and noble men who have gone before you – men who have felt the harsh blows of criticism and led in the trying times of war. Decades later, we remember their honesty, integrity, and faith more than the voices of their cruel adversaries.

We have immensely enjoyed the film George W. Bush: Faith In the White House. It gave me much needed reassurance that you are in the right place at the right time. We would like to say, “Thank you!” for publicly professing your faith in God. Thank you for supporting the cause of abstinence and traditional marriage while standing against abortion and embryonic stem cell research. Thank you for staying strong.

I believe this country has been blessed, but if we continue our present course of degrading basic values and eliminating God, I think we will see His wrath come down in the form of wars, disease, famine, and natural disasters. However, God’s people have nothing to fear. “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Phil. 3:14

Stay encouraged. We are praying for you. Keep your eyes on the Son, and you will not sink, though the storms are raging.

Amen! That was really well-written! No matter what people say, he is still the leader of the free world, and you could see this past week, when he was in Africa, how well he was welcomed. You can always critize someone when you have 20/20 hindsight, but I do not doubt his character, judgment, or sincerity. The 9/11 attacks defined his presidency as a challenging one, and the only way it would have turned out differently is if he had listened to the leftists, put his tail between his legs, and did nothing.
