Mr. Obama –
I know this will never actually reach you, but I’m going to say it anyway! It has been so long since we’ve had hope: in our politics, in our elected officials, in our nation, and in our future. We have entrusted our hope with you, please don’t let us down! The road will be long and difficult, and you will slip along the way. But no matter how difficult the journey, you must keep our hope alive — we can’t afford to go back down the cynical, bitter, and divisive path we have been on. Good luck on your journey!
