Good Morning, Mr. President!
Once again, I am honored to have the
privilege to give thanks for your
awesome leadership, in making sure,
Americans remain safe in their beloved
America! Certainly, my prayers will
be with you as you go about the business
of leading America to a greater tomorrow
and maintaining the good she has already
achieved. I so appreciate having your
daily schedule available for print-out
that allows me to also take the next,
right step in personal, professional,
and community issues of Cape Cod, MA!

In closing, I would feel so much better
if I could also see where you have on
your daily agenda, personal time, as
well! Yet, certainly this is not the
business of the average everyday citizen
like myself. In fact, your fabulous and
contagious "knowing smile" tells me you
definitely know how important "downtime"
is! I look forward to the Whitehouse Blog
on just how well the National Security
Team states the issues and/or concerns
that fall within the responsibility of
your esteemed leadership,
Mr. President!

Certainly, I must be about the business
of, educating myself, on the community
concerns of Cape Cod [that] may indeed
be the same concerns of San Diego,
Miami, New York City, et al! The
bottom line is: What is my role in
bringing about, a win-win situation
on community, state, and national
concerns that more likely than not
have their roots in my own backyard!
I remain,
Sincerely yours,
Kathleen Eason
Hyannis, MA
USA

WELL, WELL, WELL! ISN'T THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES A BUSY MAN. AND WE'RE SO PROUD. YES. I AM VERY PROUD TO SAY THAT I AM AN AMERICAN. WHAT A DIGNIFIED WAY TO LEARN THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS A VERY BUSY MAN TODAY. WOW HE MUST BE SO PROUD TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. WHAT A BUSY SCHEDULE. WITH SUCH BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE. I'M JEALOUS NO, HONORED YES.
