Dear Mr./Mrs. Future President,
First off, because of technological algorithms these days you’ll probably never read this, or for that matter have time too. Nevertheless, here is just one more American voice desiring to be heard.
There really is only one issue I’d like to address. You can fight poverty, lower taxes, and increase gun control all you want, but none of this compares to the genocide of America’s youngest population.
Abortion gets personal. No politician desires to enter into the dangerous land of women’s rights. I get it. Lucky for you that’s not necessarily what you need to do. What I’m asking of you is simple, pray and listen. You were called to this position for a purpose.
Also, I don’t like that abortion has become a means to a greater political campaign. I don’t want a slogan. I don’t want words. I want life for those who never had a chance in the first place.
I could rabble on all day and tell you to change the world, but that’s not the point. My point is love.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).
Unfortunately, I can’t watch you everyday, nor would your bodyguards allow me. But God is watching you. So do your best. Work your hardest. And remember, life is only a moment.
Sincerely, a hopeful friend
