Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President,

I am very happy to see an African American as president. What an amazing day in history to see our country finally break through the race barriers and treat men of different races as equal. If for nothing else then that reason, I celebrate your election into the highest office on our country.
Once people argued that "black" people were not equal and shouldn't be given the same rights as white folk. They were property....the same as pets or farm animal. Mr. President, thank you for putting that prejudice hopefully to rest.

That said Mr. President, I am very concerned about you as my President. I find that the wonderful freedoms in our country...the freedom to life, liberty, and happiness are still in jeopardy. Some are being persecuted daily with the same arguments that your people were once persecuted. The arguments that they are not real people ring out loud and clear... that they are just property...that they are only important if they are wanted...that they are just a choice. They are the unborn. They are being exterminated at an alarming pace. Almost 4000 babies are aborted daily in our country alone. Did you know that black children are aborted at over 3 times the rate of white children? Does that surprise you at all? Do you care? Did I just hear that you lifted the ban on funding abortions in foreign countries today by an executive order? That you support Roe Vs. Wade? That you might sign a Freedom Of Choice Bill which would then allow abortions throughout pregnancy and even partial birth abortion? Why would you of all who have known who profess to be a Christian...choose to support the destruction of children throughout the world?

Mr. has been only days since your inauguration. People are singing your praises and looking to you as our "Savior." There is only one Savior, Mr. President, and it is not you. It is the one you say you believe in. He is Jesus our Lord. How could you in good conscience be a part of allowing children to be murdered if you truly serve our Lord. How could you choose to purposely write into law things that violate every belief that we as Christians hold dear?

I will pray for you each day Mr. President. I will pray that God's will be done through you, in you, and to you. It is better that a millstone be tied around your neck and you be cast into the sea then for you to lead one child astray. You are the physical leader of our country. Many look to you as an example. Many will believe what you say and want what you want. Please make wise choices. Please make Godly choices. May you come to truly know our Lord and live for Him each day.

Well said and there are other "issues" that are questionable. We, as Christians, must have ears to hear and eyes to see what the Spirit of God is saying. We must be alert. I am listening and looking.

that was extremely well said!! I would really like to link my readers to your page to read that if you don't mind. I'll wait for a go ahead before I do that. Loved every word of it!!!

Susan, I agree there are many more issues here then just abortion. The heart of the issue for me is God's will. If Jesus were here what decision would he want for our country on each issue including marraige and family and wars and economy. If our president can't make Godly decisions on an issue so cut and dry as life issues then how can he possibly make Godly decisions in the real grey areas?

The next four years will be very interesting, to say the least.

Sally, I do admire you for speaking out for the truths in which you believe. I suppose I feel a bit differently on this issue, but only because I feel Roe vs Wade deals with the issue of a woman's right to chose what she can or can not do with her own body. No government should be able to dictate that. I do agree with you that life is sacred, and I do believe a baby (human life) is created at the moment of conception, and should not be murdered by abortion.
