Dear Mr. President,

Myself and my family would like to know if you plan to visit the state of Maryland, or the city of Baltimore in the near future. My grand-daughter is 9 years of age and would love to see you even if its far away but knowing that she had the opportunity to be close by is a blessing in itself. She is a very good student and is enjoying her new school this year.

Thank you,
Marilyn Dudley & Family

I will be attending the rally At Bowie State University. You have definately put the gas back in the tank of you supporters. I work in healthcare and the reform that insured our children was one of the greatest part of the package. i talk to many fiends overseas and the respect for America continues to surge.I am very concerned that your schedule that is posted daily. The unstable mental folks are out their. the times etc etc are too defined ,we do not need to know all. Some cable talk shows are doing an excellent job. so please Mr President give them their props. cable Fox news could definately start a war in this country.They are spreading incorrect information with no facts to back up their stupidity. God bless America and President Obama.
