I recently received an anonymous note from a reader that he had gotten from a friend who had gotten it from another friend. The note was from someone who said they were the daughter of a soldier and a life-long Chattanoogan and that they were tired of President Obama’s recalcitrance to protect American citizens. I’m not sure of the note’s provenance, or if there is any way to prove that it’s “real,” but I can say that there is no doubt in my mind that there are many Americans who believe every word written in the short note to Obama.
Dear Mr. President
Where are you? As I sit here at 4:30 in the morning with my seven year old
daughter who hasn’t slept since our City was attacked by a terrorist who grew up here and called it “Home” for 24 years of his Muslim life..
Where were you?
When the family of our five brave men who lost their lives that day were informed of the dreadful news, did they receive a call from you, our concerned, caring, president? I beg to differ. Instead you gave a nine-minute very insincere apology about what occurred in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
From my heart Mr. President, as a Native Chattanoogan you have no right to even utter the words of my hometown. When the 9 Church members were killed in Charleston, why you made no hesitation to scurry there, even rush behind a pulpit even preach a funeral! Then you took it upon yourself to sing the old hymn “Amazing Grace” trying so hard to bring God’s spirit into that place and thru the TV screen. Let me be the first poor single mother to tell you Mr. President you didn’t fool me. There was no God in your “Presentation”, no God in that “Speech” that your overpaid blind to your B.S. Muslim Personal Assistant prepared for you. No, no, no, Mr. President, you see “We The People” are fed up with you.
Instead of being an Honorable President, and ordering ALL flags at half-staff, you didn’t order any. Instead of trying to find out what this idiot had been doing to plan this attack all these months, you go on VACATION. WE SEE where you priorities lie, we see that you don’t care these men protected your family as well. Our White House, that you live in is surrounded by Secret Service men, all armed. Let’s take their guns away, like our service men and women and see how many days you call in sick.
Mr. President… Where will you be, during the funerals of our five fallen men??? From my heart I say this to you, STAY AWAY, we don’t need you now.
HERE IN THE GREAT CITY CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE WE DON’T LIKE COWARDS. WE ARE A COMMUNITY OF STRENGTH, SPIRIT, AND LOVE. HEROES ARE BORN AND RAISED HERE AND WE TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN!
The Daughter of a Soldier
